How to hire a water taxi

photoAt Venice's Marco Polo Airport, you'll find a water-taxi ticket booth near the end of a covered walkway from the arrivals hall. See our  illustrated step-by-step directions to the Alilaguna airport boat and water taxi piers. (Another option is a shared Airport Link water taxi, which is considerably cheaper than a private water taxi but double the price of the Alilaguna boat.)

At the Venice Santa Lucia Railway Station, the Piazzale Roma, and the Trochetto parking island, water taxis are down by the water.
