    Water Taxis

    The Water Taxi might be what you need when arriving in Venice. If you arrive in the afternoon and have lots of luggage (not advisable) you might hire a taxi. They are more expensive but very convenient in reaching your destination. As an example cost, from the parking garage to your hotel could be 30 euros plus tip.
    During the afternoon the Vaporetti boats are jammed with tourists and juggling your luggage could be a problem.
    Almost anywhere you go the there will be Water Taxis for hire. Particularly by the train station and the parking garage.

    In case you are in hurry or you just don't want to be pushed and disturbed by the crowd, small taxi-boat can be a good option. I've took it from Ponte Rialto and it cost me 20 euros. When I've asked the guy speaking in Italian, how much it cost, he said to me "wait a moment, the price depend on number of passengers". Since a group of people came after, he asked me 20 euros for a ride, which was acceptable.

    The water taxis are everywhere. This specific Station is in Venice Maestra, the mainland. Just follow the road in. You will see the very modern multi story parking garage. From here you can get a water taxi or a water bus.

    Floating on the Canale Grande is a must to have a first/last impression on this historical city in northern Italy.
    Especially when you have yr private guide,showing you the less touristic places.

    Another great way to get around this famous city is a water taxi. Used exactly as a normal taxi but the difference is, its on water.

    I didn't price the water taxi's in Venice, we made do with the Vaporetto, but they do look very posh.

    Take a private taxi

    Next to the local Vaporetto ( local busses) you can take a private taxi. Once in Venice let us not discuss about prices. Just look at the way you want to enjoy a trip on the Canal Grande
