Reaching Venice Hotels From Venice Airport by Sea
There are two main ways to reach the Venice Hotels located in the Historical centre of Venice, from the Airport: with Alilaguna bus boats at an affordable price, but then having to walk at less a while, or hiring a water-taxi that will cost you nearly ten times more but will take you straight to the Venice Hotel of your choice.
The journey from the Airport to the Venice Hotels can be from 45 minutes to about two hours long.
Be aware that Venice water-taxis are a very expensive mean of transport. Do not expect to pay less than 50 € even for a very few minutes of journey.
A normal fare Airport - Venice Hotel should actually (2006) be around 80 €, but we know of many cases where unaware people has been deceitfully charged even up to 200.

Some Luxury Venice Hotels provide Airport picking up for their guests
There are regular and cheap bus services between Venice Tessera Airport and Piazzale Roma (see detailed Venice bus terminal map), which will lead you there in about half an hour.
Taxis are also available for a just 15 minutes journey and a more comfortable transport.
Both the means, anyway, will leave you just at the door of the Historical Centre of Venice (see Piazzale Roma on the general Venice Map), with the choice between a long walk to the Hotel, a bus boat to arrive at least near to it, or the need to hire a water taxi, which will cost you, even for few minutes of navigation, many times more than what you have just paid for the taxi on wheels.
