Shuttle from Venice Airport to Water Taxi Dock??

I thought it was about 500m to the dock. Whether it is a short walk depends on your mobility and the amount of luggage you have to deal with.

I believe the difference in the two desks is that it is two different companies. I know about only the one because it is the one we have been using for our last 8 trips to Venice.


I don't know the age of your parents but we are in our 70's and always walk from the dock back to the airport on our return trip. I do find the luggage carts that you can rent a lot easier to use than trying to roll my luggage and carry-on.

I think everyone probably has their own favorite way to enter that beautiful city, and it really doesn't matter how you do it...water taxi, alilaguna, land taxi, or bus..whatever is the most convenient and suits your budget and finally gets you to your final destination.

I hope you have a wonderful visit with your parents!

Greetings fellow travellers!

My family and I arrive in Venice on Oct 12th. Is there a cost to the airport shuttle?

I've gotten a quote of 110 Euros for a private water taxi directly from airport to my hotel in the San Marco dock area. Is this a good rate?

Kindest regards,

mcpalafax - That seems to be the going rate for a water taxi from the airport to Venice proper.

The docks are a short walk from the main terminal at the airport. It normally takes about five to ten minutes to walk it. It relatively flat and easy going.

there used to be a shuttle bus that ran from the terminal to the dock. It has since been discontinued. Apparently a vsan service can be arranged for a fee to pick you up at the terminal and drop you at the dock for a fee.

the walk from the terminal to the dock will probably be one of the easiest ones you'll do in Venice.
