By Durant ImbodenWhere to spend your last night in Venice

For early-morning departures from Venice's Marco Polo Airport, we recommend any of these hotel options:

If you're a little more adventurous and are willing to pay close attention to the Alilaguna boat timetable, another possibility is also worth considering:

How to reach the airport quickly from the city

Again, you have several convenient choices:

  • ATVO airport bus from the Piazzale Roma. The blue express coaches normally start running at 5 a.m. and take 20 minutes to reach the airport departure terminal.

  • A car taxi from the Piazzale Roma. Figure €30-35 for the fare and 15-20 minutes for the trip.

  • A water taxi from your hotel, which shouldn't take more than 20-25 minutes but can easily cost €110 or more. (However, you'll need to walk from the pier to the terminal when you reach the airport, which can take 10 minutes or so.)

Important!

  • For early departures, we do not recommend the Alilaguna airport boat, because the trip will take longer than a bus, car taxi, or water taxi, and you'll waste valuable time walking from the Alilaguna and water taxi piers to the terminal after you reach the airport. (Exception: If you're staying on Murano, the airport boat is worth considering.)

  • We also do not recommend relying on a vaporetto (water bus) to reach the Piazzale Roma if you're leaving at the crack of dawn. You'll save yourself hassle and worry by staying near the airport or the Piazzale Roma. (If your departure is at a more reasonable hour, you can stay anywhere and take the Alilaguna airport boat to Marco Polo Airport.)

  • If you're departing from Treviso Airport, which is about 25 km or 16 miles from Venice, you can book a hotel near the Piazzale Roma and catch the Treviso airport bus, or you might want to spend the night in Treviso's delightful city center (see Venere's Treviso hotel listings) and take a taxi or local bus to the airport.
