One of the goals set by the present City Council of Venice is to foster policies aimed at attracting qualified tourism, that is, visitors interested in experiencing art in all its forms and in discovering Venice beyond its most famous highlights, such as St. Mark's Square and Rialto Bridge. It is exactely in order to promote this kind of tourism that the City has decided to launch the "Art Vaporetto", a new waterbus line which will connect the main cultural sites in town along the Grand Canal and St. Mark's Basin. Visitors will receive on board multimedia information about the attractions to be seen and will be able to hop-on hop-off at any time to focus on their specific interests. The new service, to be run by the City's public transport company Actv, is set to start on June 1st 2012. With the 'Art Vaporetto' Venice especially chose to enrich its cultural offer for those who are curious to discover the City's immense cultural heritage. The other very important outcome of this project is that we have been able, as a public administration, to create a network among the many cultural institutions in town. I'm absolutely confindent that this initiative will contribute to reinforce the nomination of Venice with the NorthEst as European Capital of Culture 2019".
