What is the best way to get from the Marittima Cruise Terminal to the Tronchetto Parking Garage?

D Weldon

Whats the best way to get elderly parents who struggle to walk far- from the cruise terminal to the train station(actually its to Hotel Ca Lucrezia) which is very near to it please.

D. Weldon: Please see the information for arriving cruise passengers in the cruising section of Veniceforvisitors.com. You can get to our cruising pages directly at http://veniceforcruisers.com

You might also want to check the map and directions on the hotel site or booking site. (Hotels nearly always have location information, usually with directions from major transportation points.)

Hello!

Thank you for your website, it is very useful

I'm going to Venice with my wife and our 2 kids, and since we are arriving around 21:00, we started checking for water taxis. Motoscafi is full, and I found an online booking of 95€ at venicelink.com, but from your posts I wonder if we can find a better deal?
What I can't understand from your posts is if we really should book in advance or if there are usually taxis available? And which is cheaper? There are so many warnings about being cheated online one gets wary!
Thank you so much

Durant and Cheryl Imboden

You won't get a better deal than 95 euros (normal fare is in the 110-euro range), but it's important to know what you're getting. Make sure that you aren't getting a shared water taxi where you're dropped off at one of a half-dozen or so locations in Venice. What you want is a standard water taxi that will take you to your hotel (if it has a water entrance) or to a point near your hotel (if it doesn't).

We've always hired water taxis at the airport (at the desk of the Consorzio Monotoscafi Venezia, a.k.a. the water taxi drivers' cooperative) or--when leaving in early morning--by phoning the Consorzio, which has a Web site at http://www.motoscafivenezia.it/eng/. I can't imagine why they'd be unable to accommodate you for the time and date of your arrival, since water taxis run 24/7.
