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

Fantastic experience - never going to be able to take the land route to Venice again. Excellent views of Venice from the water. Very easy to find ticket office and then brisk walk on moving walkway to the pier. Friendly driver who helped with luggage and boarding. Dropped off a short walk from my hotel, complete with a map and directions to it provided by the ticket office. First class.

Desk staff gave me a map for the short walk from where the boat would drop off. Everyone was very helpful & the ride was fantastic out in the spacious fresh air after being cooped up in airplanes & airports for 15 hours! So much better for me that being in a bus. Plus not being familiar with Venice the arrival was so much faster & simpler. Small bonus: I was the only passenger though that just made the trip a little shorter, plenty of room for more passengers. I would definitely use this service again.

Booking was quick and effortless. Even though it was at very short notice, the staff were very accommodating. It’s certainly good value for money if travelling alone or as a small group of up to 3-4 people - if travelling with more people, standard taxi rates might be a better deal.
