Yes, directly with the facts on the table. Like the rest of the public transport in Venice, the water taxis are relatively expensive.

A water taxi from Marco Polo Airport to Venice will cost you approximately between €105 and €135. It is cheaper to use a water taxi in Venice to the train station or Piazzale Roma. The rates are then between €65 and €100. If you want clarity, pre-booking is an option. For example, via GetYourGuide, you can book a private water taxi.

The price depends on the night shift, the number of people, and the extra service requested. For transfers at night (from 22:00 to 07:00), a surcharge of €10.00 will be charged. For 5 persons, a surcharge of € 10.00 per person also applies.
