We are aboard the Equinox from Rome to Venice next month. When we debark in Venice we are staying on in Venice for a couple of days, so we don't want to transport to the airport, but to our hotel near the Rialto Bridge. We don't particularly want to pay the exorbitant price for a water taxi and were planning on taking a vaperetto (water bus), and handling our own baggage. I'm not sure how to get from the ship to the water bus stop. What, if any transport does Celebrity provide, and where do I get the water bus? How do I get to that point? I know there are a lot of well seasoned travelers out there that can give me the answers.
After a few days in Venice we will be flying home. We're really concerned about getting to the airport on time, so we are springing for a water taxi from the canal near the airport. We don't need the hassles of a panic race to catch our flight.
