Venicelink Water Taxi

Private and Shared Service to and from the Airport and Cruise Port


It’s always a quandary: How should we get to Venice from the airport? Motor coach and vaporetto combination? (Convenient, reasonable, mildly cumbersome.) Alilaguna waterbus? (Slower, cheaper, handy.) Taxi? (Expensive, private, faster…glamour.), run by the private Alilaguna water bus service, offers some convenient options that might help making those decisions a bit easier…and you can book online. For example:

  • They offer the most competitive price for a private water taxi to and from the airport, cruise port, Piazzale Roma, train station, Lido, and Hilton transfers, and more.
  • They also offer an AirportLink shared taxi option for even less (€27 per person one way, €50 round trip), as long as you are willing ride along as other passengers with different destinations are picked up or dropped off. (There is two person minimum.) That’s €25 per person to be delivered to the nearest stop to your destination, the same price as the Alilaguna  line that’s direct to San Marco.
  • You can also book your slightly discounted Alilaguna waterbus tickets for transfers from Marco Polo airport online, for one-way or round trip.

VeniceLink also offers three-island excursions, which are frankly not recommended. It’s impossible to take in all these islands in one day; even if you insist, you’re better off buying a vaporetto pass and do it on your own time. (It’s much cheaper, and you won’t have anybody rushing you back on the boat.)
