Venice City Pass options

We will be leaving Verona bright and early and arriving in Venice on Wed around 9am, Sept 14th, giving us a full day Wed. as well as Thurs and Fri. Our stay in Venice will be on Sept 14, 15, 16, heading to the airport on Saturday the 17th of September.

Has anyone used the Venice City Pass? If so, which one did you find to be the best value? There are several options. Not sure which one to choose based on the 3 full days that we have in Venice.

Venice City Pass Options

Is a pass the best option or should we just stroll and decide what we want to do when we are there?

I have a pretty detailed itinerary from 9/3-9/13 in Rome, Florence, CT, and Verona, so perhaps not having a plan the last few days in Italy is not a bad idea?

I welcome any thoughts/advice!

The 3-day pass including 3-day transport pass, San Marco Museums, and choice of 3 churches for 67.90 EUR is worth a look. A 3-day transport pass is 40 EUR on its own, so you're paying 27.90 EUR for the other options. If you plan on visiting the Doges Palace and Frari Church, plus a few others, could be worth it. You can get a separate ticket for going to the airport on day 4. Either the "Bus + Nave" ticket for 14 EUR, or the Alilaguna boat for 15 EUR, or an expensive Water Taxi.

The starting point is deciding whether you want a transport pass at all. We enjoy walking everywhere in Venice, and only use the vaporetto to get to and from our hotel or apartment, when we have luggage. Or when we have travel companions with limited mobility, as on our last visit. This was last October and the vaporetti were so crowded it was often not a pleasant experience to ride them.

If we are there long enough that we have time to visit Giudecca and the other islands ( Murano or Burano) we buy a 24-hour pass and fit all our boat rides into that period.
