Europe 2015 – Part 3: Venice

We arrived at Venice Marco Polo Airport in the late morning and had to decide how we would get to our hotel: a private water taxi (most expensive at €55 per person and quickest), a shared water taxi (still fairly expensive at €30 per person), or a water shuttle (least expensive at €15 per person and biggest time suck). We decided on the water shuttle, which would allow us to see quite a bit of Venice from as we made our way around the main island towards our hotel.
