Water taxi

There are many watertaxi companies in Venice. The service is recognized and regulated by Venice municipality that attributes the authorizations and quotes the fares. A watertaxi without the license shown on its side is thus an unauthorized boat. A taxi can carry up to 14 people. In the City a water taxi is always available in the nearby of the main sights, among which: Tronchetto, Piazzale Roma, Train Station, Rialto and S. Zaccaria (Danieli). Watertaxis are available even at the International Airport M. Polo. From the airport it's necessary a 20-minute ride to get to the City.

Speedboat in Venice

Another interesting way for sightseeing Venice from the water is taking a private speedboat (or GT speedboat). Those boats are easily recognizable as they are biggest than a water taxi and they can carry up to 250 people. Some companies propose the itinerary from Tronchetto to St. Mark's Square that allows you to pass through Canale della Giudecca and Bacino S. Marco to see the S. Giorgio Island with the omonymus church built by architect Andrea Palladio (1565, neoclassic style). Other companies offer excursions by big boats to the islands of the Lagoon, they last half a day. From Venice start some excursions to Chioggia as well. Along the itinerary are remarkable some beautiful views of the south lagoon and many small islands. Long time ago those places were convents or forts, like Santo Spirito, Poveglia and many others. It's a two-hour ride and is possible to enjoy the peacefulness of the huge space of the lagoon, far from traffic and noise.
