Ground taxi, Venice Piazzale Roma to Tessera hotel

We have a group going from Piazzale Roma in Venice to the Titian Hotel in Tessera, right next to Marco Polo Airport. I know there's a bus from PR that runs by the hotel, but has anyone taken a taxi from PR to the airport area? Some in our group have a lot of luggage and would prefer the taxi over the bus, but we don't have an estimate of the cost for taxi.

TY

It looks like a regular taxi (for 1 to 3 people) would be about 40 euros. BUT if they have a LOT of luggage they may need a larger car - in the 45 or 50 euro range.

And I think they would need to arrange in advance if more than 1 or 2 taxis are going to be needed.

Not sure why this is better than using a bus.

you do not see the difference between a bus and a taxi? then I probably cannot explain it.

Obviously for many trips a taxi is far superior to a bus.

But in this instance - when a group is moving from one place to another with a lot of luggage - and presumably there is staff to stow the luggage on the bus and deal with it at the other end - no I really don't see this is less convenient for a quite short ride.

And no - we don;t take public transit with luggage - only do cabs. But as part of a group the situation is different.
