Water Taxi to Venice Airport

The water taxi ride to Venice Airport is another one of those things that costs some money but is worth it. Here’s the video, leaving the heart of Venice all the way to the airport. Stay with it to see an airplane on final approach. You’ll see plenty of action in the small canals, too.

Enjoy the journey where you’re going.
