WWYD? Venice water taxi vs alilaguna

Jump to last reply

Since there are 4 of us traveling it seems it might be worth it to splurge on water taxi from Marco Polo to Hotel Flora. I understand that they do not have their own dedicated dock but there is an accessible dock visible from their courtyard.

We have some over 60 travelers, I want ease of travel for everyone.

The hotel website says it is a 3 minute walk from the alilaguna drop off point to hotel, but I do not know how difficult (stairs) and overwhelmingly crowded this walk is at mid day in peak season on a first time visit (don't know our way around) after a long overseas flight. These thoughts give me anxiety at half my in laws age. I am a jet lag sufferer & I don't do well with crowds.

The cost difference works out to 14pp vs 25pp. This will be my in laws first and only trip to Venice and possibly Italy/Europe all together. This is an occasion for a taxi, right?

Any idea how long the taxi transfer might take? One thing holding me back is that if it's very quick we might end up waiting a bit for hotel check in and maybe we might as well spend that time on the 1:15 alilaguna transfer. Plane lands at 13:15.

Thanks.
