You will receive detailed instructions on how to arrive in Venice when you book your apartment with us. Please bear in mind that the water bus service (known as the ‘vaporetto’ system) does not serve Venice’s Marco Polo Airport or Treviso Airport (which is served by the airlines Ryanair and Transavia). The following options are available, depending on which airport you are flying into:
From Marco Polo Airport (http://www.veniceairport.it/)
The easiest and, we think, the most memorable way into Venice if arriving at Marco Polo is by private water taxi. This can either be booked through us or found directly at the airport. Although this is the more expensive option, it is also the most convenient.
The following information and rates apply when booking a water taxi through Views on Venice -
- A water taxi is able to carry up to a maximum of 10 passengers and a maximum of 10 pieces of luggage.
- the standard rate from Marco Polo Airport to the apartment (or vice versa) is 115 euros for a maximum of 4 passengers. Supplement for each additional passenger : 10 euros.
- supplement between 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. : 10 euros each trip (per water taxi).
Please be aware that special requests made to the water taxi driver to travel to your apartment via the Grand Canal (when the apartment is not located on the Grand Canal or is normally accessed via a quicker/more direct route) may incur a supplement of approx. 50 euros per taxi (each trip).
You are kindly requested to pay the water taxi driver directly at the end of each journey.
Alternatively you can take a road taxi or the bus (see http://www.actv.it/ and http://www.atvo.it/ for timetables) to Piazzale Roma. From Piazzale Roma you may choose either to walk or take the water bus (the vaporetto) to the stop closest to your apartment. (The most convenient vaporetto stop for your apartment can be found in the apartment description on this website).
Upon your arrival, one of our representatives will meet you at the vaporetto stop (or water taxi disembarkation point) closest to the apartment (as agreed during our prior correspondence with you) and accompany you to the property.
From Marco Polo Airport it will take approximately 25 minutes by water taxi and about an hour by other means of transport.
AND NOW, for that extra bit of pampering or at times when you feel you'd like a helping hand, Views on Venice is delighted to offer you a fully escorted private transfer service from Marco Polo Airport all the way to your chosen Views on Venice apartment.
Not only will our trusted English-speaking driver wait for your arrival at the Airport Arrivals Hall, they'll welcome you onboard your private taxi or minibus (assisting with your luggage of course) and take you directly to the water taxi dock at the Airport. Once there, you'll be placed in the very capable hands of our English-speaking water taxi driver for your private water taxi ride into the city where you'll meet your appointed Views on Venice team member at the closest possible drop-off point to your apartment.
Throughout the transfer you'll be assured of a punctual, reliable and very personalised service allowing for a relaxed, stress-free and most enjoyable start to your stay.
This convenient and seamless transfer option is also available in the opposite direction (i.e. from your apartment to Venice's Marco Polo Airport at the end of your stay) and is only available to Views on Venice clients by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org when making your Views on Venice apartment booking.
Rates which are per party and NOT per person are as follows -
Car taxi via pier station + private water taxi
(seating a maximum of 3 guests with luggage) = €160.00 (one way).
Supplement for each additional passenger : 15 euros.
Car taxi via Piazzale Roma + private water taxi (seating a maximum of 3 guests with luggage) = €130.00 (one way). Supplement for each additional passenger : 15 euros.
You are kindly requested to pay the car taxi /minibus driver directly in cash (euros) or credit card for each journey (i.e. at the start of your transfer if arriving in Venice or at the end of your transfer if departing).
From Treviso (Canova) Airport (http://www.trevisoairport.it/)
Please note that Treviso Airport (with its Ryanair and Transavia flights) is situated inland and is therefore not served by water taxis, the Alilaguna boat service or the water bus (vaporetto) system.
There is, however, a regular ATVO coach service which links this airport with Venice and usually coincides with flights. See http://www.atvo.it/ for timetables. The journey from Treviso Airport to Piazzale Roma takes around 1 hour 10 minutes. From there you may choose to either take a private water taxi (see 'Piazzale Roma' section below), walk or take the water bus (the vaporetto) closest to your apartment. (The most convenient vaporetto stop for your apartment can be found in the apartment description on this website). Upon your arrival, one of our representatives will meet you at the vaporetto stop (or water taxi disembarkation point) closest to the apartment (as agreed during our prior correspondence with you) and accompany you to the property.
