Photo of small boats on the canals of Venice


The geographical location of Venice in the middle of the lagoon makes that most of the transport of people and goods is by water. If Venice does not represent the greatest human concentration in the world without cars, place occupied by the Medina of Fes el Bali, the city remains in the twenty-first century the largest island in the world to be free of cars and trucks, despite developments important.

The traditional personal transport is the Venetian gondola, although it is almost used only by tourists or for special occasions (ceremonies, weddings and burials). Its cost is indeed prohibitive. In fact, there are only 425 left in 2009.

The Venetians use mainly water-buses, called "vaporetti" which, managed by the ACTV, serve the different islands by criss-crossing the principal canals, as well as traghetti, gondolas with two rowers for pedestrians who cross the Grand Canal a few places without bridges. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
