Generally speaking, you should expect to pay around US$30-35 ( € 27-30) for a shared, one-way water taxi and a whopping US$215-290 ( € 200-265) for a private water taxi that will pick you up or drop you off right at the airport. (Prices to and from the bus station and cruise ship port are a little less for private water taxis, but about the same for shared transportation). So save your money, enjoy the ride around and through Venice, and drink an extra spritz Veneziano or crisp Pinot Grigio for us with all the money you save by NOT booking a private taxi to or from the airport!
Marco Polo International Airport sits on the mainland just over 4 nautical miles from the city of Venice. Although check-in and security are streamlined and relatively easy to get through, international passport control can take a frustratingly long time to get through. We’ve narrowed down restaurant and food options to our #1 pick at Marco Polo, deCanto Wine Bar and Restaurant, just around the corner from passport control.
