Venice city pass: how it works?

Venice offers a wide variety of discounts for public transport and tourist attractions. On the other hand, there are so many different kinds of passes, it's difficult to understand which one is the most convenient to actually buy.

For anyone in doubt, here is a list of useful information regarding touristic passes in Venice.


Chorus Pass

If you would like to visit churches in Venice, the Chorus Pass allows you to visit 18 different churches for free.

This is useful for those who want to see the most important churches in Venice.

Rolling Venice Card

If you are between 6 and 29 years old the Rolling Venice Card offers interesting discounts for the main attractions of Venice.

Tourist Travel Card

The Tourist Travel Card allows unlimited use of vaporetto (water bus) services and bus services for the mainland.

For those who need to use public transportation to connect to the mainland this card is extremely useful.

Venezia Unica City Pass

Venezia Unica City Pass offers free entrance to the main museums and churches of Venice and discounts for expositions, stores, and restaurants. Purchasing passes online is the best way!

The cheapest way is to buy passes is through the webpage Venezia Unica at least a week in advance. Prices depend on the offers available.


  • If you are thinking about using the Vaporetto services more than once and you are between 6 and 29 a good combination of passes would be the Rolling Venice Card + Tourist Travel Card.
  • If you are considering visiting three or more different churches, Chorus Pass is a good option.
  • If you only want to visit the museums in San Marco, the Venezia Unica City Pass (with the added tariffs for the Museums of San Marco) suits you best.
  • If other museums interest you besides the ones in San Marco, the Venezia Unica City Pass (with the added tariffs for the Civic Museum of Venice) is best for you.
