The Venice tramway network is a public transport system serving the municipality of Venice. The project is divided in two sections: line 1, connecting Favaro, Mestre and Venezia, with an overall length of 14 km and line 2, connecting Mestre with Marghera with a total length of 6 km.

The new public transport system consists in a rubber-wheeled rail-guided tram that runs on a central monorail, fixed to a running platform in reinforced concrete with a suitably roughened surface, wide enough for the maximum encumbrance of the wheels.
