    We walked around the block and they wanted to get us down. At 15 minutes saying that it was already 30. If my husband does not tell them that he took the time and they were just 15, they lower us. Apart from the walk they did not take it along the main avenue. And an abuse in the price. There are maritime taxis much better the ride and they explain us about the history of venice
