Transport in Venice

Two recent Venice paintings

Salute water taxi – oil on canvas – 40cm x 40cm, Sold.

Although gondolas are considered the traditional modes of transport in Venice , on arrival at the airport, the trip across the lagoon would be too difficult and would therefore have to be via bus, train or water-bus .

If affordable, one of the loveliest ways to arrive in Venice is by water taxi. The taxi’s are built in a 1950’s style and the attention to detail is evident with polished chrome or brass, teak decks and cream leather interiors. These vessels flash across the waterways and anyone visiting should try at least one trip if possible, they ooze style and it’s such a fun way to travel.

Andrew has depicted views of the Salute with each watercraft in situ as they are both a regular sight and deserve note, evoking wonderful memories of this most exceptional place.
