Can one of the kind Venice experts help me understand the diference between between Veniceconnected.com and Venicelink.com?
Veniceconnected offers a 72 hr transportation pass for 28 euros and an alilaguna ticket for 12 euros from the airport to city center. They don’t appear to offer private taxi transfers.
Venicelink has the private taxi transfers to a hotel (which I want). Their shortest alilaguna pass is 72 hours for 45 euros, although it includes a tour of the islands. I don't think they offer a "transportation pass".
Are the aliaguna passes for the same company? Does this refer to the valparetto? Is the Venicelink alilaguna pass the same as the Veniceconnected 72 hour transportation pass? I am trying to understand the whole system of transportation within Venice.
I planning to use a private water taxi transfer from the airport to our hotel (there are three of us - mid 50s and earl 60s - and we will have enough luggage we want to go directly to the Hotel Becher where we are staying). In addition I am trying to consider my options for tickets for transportation and access to attractions like the Palazzo Ducale and Campanile di San Marco sometimes during the time we will be in Venice.
Can anyone help ease my confusion?
