Premium Venice Water Taxi
The easiest and most convenient way to reach Venice and the Lido from Marco Polo airport is our Premium Venice Water Taxi service. A Water Taxi assistant holding a name card will meet you at the Arrivals hall and accompany your to the water-taxi dock. Your premium Venice water taxi will be waiting for you for an unforgettable, hassle-free, first contact with Venice and the lagoon.
Our boat will take you directly to the hotel dock or, if the hotel does not have a private dock, to the closest public dock.
The trip from Marco Polo airport to Venice city centre takes about 30 minutes. A 30-minute tour along the Canal Grande (additional fee required) is also available. We suggest you to take this tour on arrival in order to enjoy a first look of the city from a privileged point of view.
