Funds For Your Trip To Venice

If you are a tourist like me, you probably need to be aware of your finances. The other kind a person who does not need to worry about money would probably not open this page anyway! As always, it pays to be aware and prepared. Venice is not cheap as many a backpacking tourist would have found. It pays, like I said before to do a little maths.

Getting into Venice from the airport is will cost you around 10 if you travel by a public boat. Alternatively, you could take a water taxi which will cost around 80.
