The perfect venice souvenir !

It is the most democratic means of transport used by the citizens of Venice and by the many tourists arriving from all over the world; allows free circulation, connects not only the historic city centre of Venice but also all of the islands of Venice.

Sooner or later we’re all bound to take the vaporetto if we want to expand our vision. Many of the vaporetti still in use were built by Cantieri Navali De Poli, sadly now closed, and on the island of Pellestrina there is the floating dock preserved by the ACTV (the Venetian public transport system).

For tourists in a hurry, the Venetian gondola is the boat, though we can count a multitude of them, a true fleet of specialized hulls, not to mention the different variations which number is no less than 16.

For now, the collection, which doesn’t include the gondola, features three models: the vaporetto (water bus) or “bateo” , the taxi and the barge or “chiatta”

The shapes of this boat is so iconic that it was enough to reproduce the most striking lines and surfaces in the wood to evoke the vessel.

Many of the vaporetti boats that you can see floating in the Lagoon still depart from the island of Tronchetto, where you can also find the ACTV headquarters, located at number 33.
