We found that the Venice water taxis were not frequent enough and that they were generally quite expensive to use. The staff on board and at all the stop off points were generally very helpful.

The water taxi service is an excellent way to get from the airport to your location. They meet you when you grab your baggage and then transport you via land taxi to the water taxi. The service is very good. Not cheap but worth it...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
