It allows you to purchase a ticket for various means of water transportation for a couple of days. If you have a short trip, you can buy a one-day ticket or a three-day ticket. There are also weekly tickets or one-way tickets, but you will save the most money by purchasing a day or couple-day pass. 

Relaxing in Venice
