Validation of the tickets - Validity time for Tourist travel Time Tickets

You have to buy your ticket before going on board. If you have not been able to buy your ticket prior getting on board of the boat, signal it immediately to the sailor that ties the boart to the pier. Otherwise, you will pay a minimum fine of 50 € per person.

In the same way, all tickets, Tourist travel Time Tickets included, have to be validated prior to get on board of the road bus or the water bus, or you will have to pay the same fine as if you had no ticket. Tourist travel Time Tickets have to be validated only once at their first use.

The time validity of the Tourist travel Time Tickets (24 hours to 7 days) begins at the first validation of the time ticket.

Beware, when you buy or withdraw (if you have bought it online) your ticket, to signal the counter clerk before paying or withdrawing your ticket, not to validate it for you (as they always do) if you do not want to use it immediately.
