Venice vaporettos

Thank you for helping with this technical question. I have a voucher for 6 ACTV vaporetto cards. This voucher contains a PIN number code which is to be entered at the automatic ticket machines. When I enter the number, does it register for 6 people? Or do I have to enter the PIN six times? Every time I use the vaporetto, must I enter the number? What about the vaporetto police that check to see your ticket? What do I show them? I want to figure this out now so I don't waste time in Venice

Getting your Tickets
by: Maria

Maria's Reply I normally just buy my tickets when I'm in Venice but, from what I recall, with the voucher system you need to convert the voucher into tickets at one of the automatic ticket machines - called emettitrici automatiche.

You'll find them at all the main stops like the station, San Marco and Rialto. Once you have the ticket then you just validate your ticket before your first trip and then before each subsequent trip.

Nowadays you need to buy the tickets as part of the Venice Unica Card so you will need to create a separate card for each person and then load the tickets on that particular card. You can read more under the transport section of our Venice page.
