I recently visited Venice with my husband & 3 other couples. We travelled from airport to hotel & back again by private hire water taxi ... It was an amazing experience, by far the best way to travel.

For transfers to and from airport, a water taxi is costly, $120 euros, but quick and drop you off at most hotels. Convenience of service is worth the cost for more than one people.

If you’re in Venice and want that special feeling, get a water taxi. Quick door to door service like something out of a movie. Not cheap at €120 but room for 8-10 passengers.

I wasn’t keen on spending the extra money on a private water taxi (Eur120 vs Eur40 in a car), but a few friends at work told me I had to do it! They were 100% correct! It was such a good service at the airport...More

I know it is expensive, but there is no better way to move around and have some unique views that you can get only from the water!

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
