The best water taxis from Venice Airport
With Welcome, your trip from Venice Airport to the city centre of Venice is easier than ever! Due to the maze of canals that make up central Venice, cars can only travel as far as Piazzale Roma. In order for travellers to reach their hotels in the lagoon area, they need to continue their journey by foot or by taking a Venice water taxi. We offer a combination transfer all the way to your hotel, so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the views of one of the most beautiful cities on earth.
After exiting the baggage claim area at Venice Airport (VCE), your friendly, English-speaking driver will be waiting for you, holding a sign with your name. There’s no need to worry if your plane is delayed, as your driver will receive updates on your delayed flight so that they can be there waiting for you, whatever time you land.
After meeting your driver, they will help you with your luggage and guide you to your designated taxi. Eager to provide you with local tips and hidden gems in Venice, your driver will answer any questions you may have about the city.
