Make your arrival to Venice one of the highlights of your trip with this private water taxi transfer from the airport to your hotel. Head straight from Marco Polo Airport to your hotel via the Venetian Lagoon. It’s a fantastic introduction to the city in style at any time of day or night.
  • 24-hour water taxi transfer caters to early and late arrivals
  • Arrive in Venice and your hotel in style
  • Your driver and guide accompany you to your hotel lobby
  • Get introduced to Venice’s canals and waterway sites
What to Expect
Your private 1-way transfer begins at the airport arrival terminal, where a tour representative meets you. A porter takes your bags from the terminal directly to the boat. The rep escorts you through an air-conditioned walkway to the boat dock. Board a private motorboat along with your luggage. Then, relax as the boat speeds across the Venetian Lagoon and canals. With a full-service option, the rep stays with you from the airport arrival terminal to the door of your hotel. If your Venice hotel does not have a private water taxi stop, the captain will let you off at the closest available stop. A tour operator helps with the luggage and guides you to your hotel.

Absolutely brilliant trip! Gianluca collected us from the Airport Arrivals Hall and helped carry our luggage to his boat. Once aboard we settled down to a fast, enjoyable trip to one of the THE cities of the World, dropping us right by the door of where we were staying.
