Posh way of travelling around Venice. ALWAYS agree a price before you get in as there is no meter.
We had a water taxi to go from the Savoia and Jolanda hotel to Palazzo Pisani-Moretta to a ball - not a great distance - and when we got out I thought the skipper said 16 Euros and what he actually said was 60 Euros! I nearly fell in the canal with shock as I hadn't checked the price beforehand.
It's a nice way to pull up at a waterside hotel though

Motor Boat Launch
The ship stopped at Venice for the day and we purchased an idependent package which included transfers from the port to the city centre. We were transferred by a chartered motor boat to San Marco Canal where we disembarked and began our Venetian adventures.
Because our return flight was a red-eye we couldn't use the vaporetti to get to the airport. We had to take a water taxi. Something we hadn't anticipated. Very expensive but a beautiful ride through the canals of Venice at night. We call it our "gondola ride" because we never took one. The water taxi brought us directly to the airport.
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

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.
