    What to Expect
    Arriving in Venice can be a hectic experience, with an awaiting array of private motorboats, water taxis, gondolas, and public vaporettos. Skip the stress by pre-booking this shared water taxi service. 

    Depending on whether you arrive by train or bus, your boat will be waiting at either the Santa Lucia Station or the Piazzale Roma bus terminal. Your professional driver will take you and any other passengers to your hotels, including accommodations in the Venice Lido area. Relax and enjoy the ride across the Venetian lagoon and through the city’s famed canals.

    Please provide hotel and arrival details when booking your transfer. You will receive instant confirmation and a travel voucher to show the driver. You’ll be asked to reconfirm your pickup time and location 24-48 hours before your arrival by contacting the number on your voucher.
