transportation from hotel to Marco Polo airpot

by Mahsa878

I have been struggling to find a mean of transportation to Marco Polo airport. my flight is early in the morning (6:45am) on Dec 26th and I've heard that water taxi cant be much dependable that early in the morning. can anyone suggest any taxi company that I can contact before hand and make reservations?

I cannot speak for the reliability of water taxis, but they will be extremely expensive.

The first bus for the airport leaves at 5am from Piazzale Roma. This will get you there around 5.30 am. Timetable and information in English here:

Alternatively, take a land taxi from Piazzale Roma, which will be cheaper than a water-taxi. Your hotel should be able to provide contact details, or make the booking for you.

Depending on where your hotel is situated, you can either walk to P Roma or take the vaporetto (water bus). There are some night services. Timetables & information here:

Or you could get the hotel to book a water-taxi from your hotel to P Roma.

consider also the alilaguna public (and reasonably priced) service to the airport.

That's possibly your best bet (depending on where your hotel is/what time you want to be at the airport). The Linea Blu service starts at 03:40 from S Marco.

Water taxis from the island to Marco Polo Airport should cost around £50.00 sterling. This is what I normally pay.
Be assured that they are completely dependable and your hotel concierge will gladly book this service for you.
You can also book a water taxi, in advance, using 'Venice Guide and Boat'.
You can even pay online, although they may charge a bit more.

Water taxis are not only pure horror to the laguna climate but also to the climate in general....
If there is a public transport, this should always be first choice.

Travel Tips for Venice

The emblem of the town

by montezaro

More then anything else we know about, gondola is the emblem of the town. When somebody says Venice, the very first association is undoubtely the gondola. It is, however, very expensive association and not all of us can afford it when visiting Venice. Although there exist fix price for a ride, which is around 60 euros (far too much as I am concerned), most of gondolieri demand 80 to 100 euros for a 45 minutes ride.
Is it why the most of Venice gondolas could be seen unoccupied?

Donna Leon's Mysteries

by JetlagCity

Before I came here, I gobbled up Donna Leon's series of mysteries set in Venice. They give a great sense of what daily life is like for people who actually live here (Leon lives here herself, but don't try to spot her, she hates being famous). You'll also get to know where lots of places are throughout the different neighborhoods as you make your way through the pages, which is very helpful once you get here. Her quirky protagonist, Guido Brunetti, is a provincial Venetian through and through, and will have you smiling and chuckling over and over. Start with the first book, Death at La Fenice. The fourth, Acqua Alta, is another one of my favorites in this series.

~ Venice Transportation ~

by Carnation

The transport system in Venice has not changed much, the only difference is that there are many motorised boats as well as the traditional rowing types. The famous gondolas are still recognised as the symbol of Venice, and a ride in one is very popular amongst many tourists.

Difficult for the solo traveller

by christine.j

I noticed that in quite a few restaurants many dishes were marked as
"minimum two orders".
This doesn't matter if you're travelling with another person who likes the same food as you do. But if you're on your own, or simply like to eat different things, this can be a problem.

I can't think of any reason for this, maybe someone from Venice can enlighten me.
For us it was no problem, since we both like the same type of food. Still, it would have
been nice to try a greater variety by ordering two different dishes and then share.

Do You Know these Guys?

by nicolettart

I thought these masks reminded me of something I had seen somewhere--then it hit me!! Giuseppe Arcimboldo's paintings of the Four Seasons. He's a lesser-known Renaissance artist who painted portraits consisting of fruits, vegetables, and other natural objects. You can think of him as the first Surreal painter, too.
