"DO NOT TAKE WATER TAXIS. That..." Venice Transportation Tip by RodeKill69

Venice Transportation: 670 reviews and 940 photos

DO NOT TAKE WATER TAXIS. That is the biggest rip off in europe. This woman in front of me hailed one and the guy quoted her 150,000 lira >> $75. I hope she was going to JFK for that price. It's all about the water buses. They say you have to buy a ticket, but if you risk it and just walk on, the fine is only 3 or 4 trips so you'll probably break even anyway. We never got caught. he he suckers
