Boat services

Venice is without doubt more accessible than you might think. All vaporetto landing stages are accessible to the disabled. Problems may, however, arise during particularly high tides when the access ramps may slope excessively.
In the vaporetto line 1 and 2, travelling along the Canal Grande, 4 wheelchairs at a time are admitted.

Boats on line LN connecting the city with Lido di Venezia and the Cavallino - Punta Sabbioni littoral are also accessible.
The motorboat are equipped for only wheelchair at a time.
Two ferry boats operate between Tronchetto and Lido di Venezia, with lifts and toilets for the disabled.

A special price of 1,50 Euro (from July 1, 2015) is applied for wheelchair users and is comprehensive of the possible accompanying person's fare.
