  • Are you able to arrange hotel pick up to bring us to the airport - water taxi or ground. Either? Thank you.

    Dear customer, Greetings from Venice! As per indications about how to get from the airport to the Hotel, you have some alternatives, briefed as follows: - 1. PICK UP- CAR AND WATER TAXI : by this service we can reserve a CAR which will bring you from the airport to Piazzale Roma. From there a WATER TAXI will be waiting for you to take you to Palazzo Abadessa. The water taxi will pass through the grand canal until San Apostoli with a rate of 160,00 euro for 2 persons. A person will meet you at the arrival gate with your name in the card. This must be paid CASH directly at the boat driver and remember somebody will help you with your bags. In order to book it we need your flight details. - 2. ALILAGUNA : If you take the Alilaguna Blu motorboat (15,00 euro per person), public service, get off at the Fondamente Nuove stop. Once you are there, take Calle degli Specchieri and proceed straight ahead until you reach the end corner. Then turn right, go straight to F.Zen until you will reach a small bridge to your left. Cross the bridge and follow to street Ca Zanardi. Keep walking in Calle Zanardi and Ruga dei due Pozzi until you come toFondamenta Priuli to the right. Here, cross the first bridge to the left and 100 meters further you will find Palazzo Abadessa. - 3. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION : Take the "Venezia Air Terminal" BUS (ATVO-Blue) direct bus or buses line number 5 or 5/D (ACTV- Orange)direction Venezia/Piazzale Roma. From there take steamboat (vaporetto) line number 1 to the further left of the vaporetto stop (direction Lido) ( Price for the combined ticket BUS+Vaporetto 12,00 euro per person). Get off at Ca' d'Oro stop (5th stop). Once you are there, walk till the end of the small alleway in front of the pier: you will find yourselves in the main street called Strada Nova. Here, turn right and keep walking for approximately 20 metres. Then, take Calle Priuli street to your left. Keep going until you will see a large green wooden door and will be amazed by our beautiful gem: walled garden. - 4. WATER TAXI : this is a private service of taxi-powerboats for passenger transport. It is the fastest and most panoramic way to reach the hotel (about 30 minutes) but remember you have to walk with your luggage for 10 minutes before reaching the water taxi dock. The rate, which must be paid CASH directly to the driver, is 120,00 euro (2 persons). How to get a water taxi: go at the water taxi desk at the arrival gate. Ask the driver to take you to Palazzo Abadessa. You will be dropped directly at our private dock. Hooping to have been useful, we stay available for any other need and waiting for your feedback in order to proceed with your booking! With the chance, we extend Our Best Regards Luca Front Office Team
