Campo San Luca San Marco 4267/C, 30124 Venice, Italy
High demand for the shuttle when we arrived around midday, so had to wait in queue for about half an hour for the next available boat. Trip into Venice was an hour and 20 minutes but comfortable and the views interesting. Lots to see on...More
We decided to leave St Marks square to visit the smaller islands. First was Murano where the famous glass is made. To go and watch the glass blowing was magic, creating amazing pieces of glass animals. To walk around the shop where amazing glass chandeliers...More
We were met in arrivals and escorted to our water taxi. The 30 minute was exhilarating and was a great start to our trip, if somewhat pricey. Only negative was our pilot/driver tried to make us get out in a place with a one metre...More
This is a tour through the water bus company Alilaguna. The address on the booking confirmation was not where we needed to go. We had to ask around. Once there we needed to go to the ticket office (also not clear at first) to receive...More
This is an incredibly easy way to see beautiful islands and explore their unique cultures! With this trip, you even get a private demonstration from the famous Murano glass blowers. It was a fantastic experience!
We went on the gondola ride and it honestly wasn’t that great. I’m not sure I would do it again. We did not buy tickets, we just walked around and found a guy. It was a company because all the guys in the boats wore...More
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
It all comes down to operating costs for the company. On the afternoon we used their services, there were only four of us so the boat was well under its passenger capacity; I doubt the company would have covered their fuel... More
It all comes down to operating costs for the company. On the afternoon we used their services, there were only four of us so the boat was well under its passenger capacity; I doubt the company would have covered their fuel and wages costs for the trip. I suggest booking a seat on a coach from the airport to Venice and then a ferry to your hotel.
