Best way from Marco Polo airport to rialto bridge

Hi all. Wanting to know the best way to get from Marco Polo airport to rialto bridge? We are staying at the rialto hotel and don't really want to pay for a water taxi. Also the cost of transport. Thanks

Take a Arancio line Alilaguna ferry, they stop at Rialto close to the Hotel cost €15

The Alilaguna ferry is cheap and convenient but rather slow. See their website www.alilaguna.it.

If speed is important then a private water taxi from Marco Polo will take you there in about 35 minutes but not cheap. These can be booked after you land at the Consorzio Motoscafi Venezia desk in the Arrivals Hall at Marco Polo

Alilaguna is very-very slow, but it does not seem to bother everyone. I am a little neurotic and start pulling my hair out in about 20 minutes. :-)

There are shared water taxis and we had a poster here do a write-up on it. He thought that it was a great value and best way to go. There are pre-set stops, so it is not door to door, but I would think that Rialto would be one of the pre-set stops. Also do not remember how much it was. You could put "shared water taxi" in the search box.

Another way would be to take a bus or a land taxi to Piazzale Roma and then a vaporetto. It sounds more complex but it really is not.

From Rialto, I always take the vaporetto to Piazzale Roma, and then the ATVO airport bus direct to the airport. Drops you right in front of the door, not like the Alilaguna. If you time it right, there is no need to spring for a taxi. You walk out the door of Hotel Rialto and on to the No. 2 vaporetto. You go to Piazzale Roma and get on the bus.
