Great ride and start of our Venice trip. It is a bit expensiv but the ride is more like a tour then a taxi ride. We did not share the water taxi.

My wife and I took a pre-booked water taxi from the airport. It's the best way to arrive and enter the city and allows you the luxury of speed and convenience. I would do it no other way albeit it is pricey

Hello. We are holidaying at eurocamp Mediterraneo in cavallino treporti and we arrive at Marco Polo airport on 28 May. We are trying to determine the most cost effective transfer. There will be 29 in total (including children). What is the max number for a water taxi and what is the cost. How close to the eurocamp can it take us? Thank you
