Full description
Boating over the lagoon from Marco Polo International Airport upon your arrival in Venice is easily the most exclusive and romantic airport transfer in the world. This is an exclusive shared water taxi service from Venice Marco Polo Airport to central Venice hotels, and back. Hop into a water taxi straight after you pick up your luggage and get whisked across the lagoon to your hotel. Not only is this the most romantic way to travel, but it’s also the most direct route to the city. For some hotels located along the Grand Canal, or hotels such as Hilton Stucky and San Clemente, the water taxi stops directly at the hotel. For less-accessible destinations on the inner canals, you will be dropped off within easy walking distance. If your hotel is JW Marriott - Isola delle Rose, you will be dropped off in San Marco nearby the Marriott hotel shuttle boat

    The desk was very helpful. It was a bit further of a walk than we were told but this wasn’t an issue. Our driver was brilliant and dropped us right at our hotel. You can book the public water bus when you arrive for cheaper but we booked the shared private and because of Covid we were the only ones on the boat, so got a boat all to ourselves!

    My flight ended up being two hours delayed which meant when I arrived the desk was closed but thankfully other members of the airport staff called the company for me and I was picked up about an hour later. The ride was fast and was dropped off 2 minutes walk to my hotel.

    I often use this service instead of a private water taxi from the airport if travelling solo. I get dropped at my hotel, and spend the cash I save on a fabulous dinner. What’s not to like? (If you like to cut it fine, it’s not so useful for the return journey, as the stated pickup tends to be quite early.)
