Venice does not follow the usual pattern when it comes to transport. In most of Venice there are no cars to help transport people and goods. Local transport therefore requires nautical skills and/or physical strength. Water ways at Venice are of different expanse.
You therefore find different size boats or ships moving people and goods; from the massive cruise liner, to the vaporetto, the water taxi, gondola or private boat.
The local version of the tram or bus is the vaporetto. It ferries people around the city and to nearby islands night and day.
Goods can be transported by boat only so far.
The final distance has to be covered with muscle strength.
No matter whether it’s parcels, mail, fruit and veggies, luggage or rubbish
And then there are happy occasions that also needing transport.
