Treviso Airport Buses to Venice

How to take inexpensive ATVO and Barzi ground transportation from Treviso Airport to Venice's Piazzale Roma. (Treviso Airport is the closest airport to Venice for Ryanair, BelleAir, Transavia, Wizzair, GermanWings, and SkyTrain.)

From: Treviso, Italy


ABOVE: An ATVO from Treviso Airport enters the Piazzale Roma in Venice.

The most convenient hotels for Treviso Airport:

Ryanair, one of several European low-cost airlines, has flights that connect Venice with London (Stansted), Liverpool (John Lennon), Brussels (Charlerol), Hahn (90 km from Frankfurt), and Girona (an airport on the Costa Brava, 110 km from Barcelona).

At least, that's what the timetable suggests: In reality, the airline uses Treviso Airport, (TSF), which is about 26 km or 16 miles from Venice, or considerably farther away than Venice's own Marco Polo Airport. Other budget carriers that use Treviso Airport include BelleAir, Transavia, Wizzair, Germanwings, and SkyTrain.

If you're headed for Venice from Treviso Airport, the easiest--and cheapest--way to get there is to take the connecting coach service. Bus times coincide with flight arrivals and departures, and the fare is much cheaper than a taxi. (It's also far less expensive than a private car with driver, which could cost more than your airline ticket.)

Two bus companies offer frequent scheduled service between TSF and  central Venice. Buses are modern air-conditioned coaches with ground-level baggage compartments.


ATVO buses require 50 minutes to cover the distance between TSF and Venice's Piazzale Roma.

  • At Treviso Airport, buy your ticket from an ATVO ticket machine or at the ATVO counter for €10 one-way or €18 roundtrip. (Return tickets are valid for 10 days.)

  • At Venice's Piazzale Roma, buy your ticket at the ATVO "Venezia Air Terminal" office on the northern side of the square.

  • You can also order ATVO tickets online.

  • No matter where you buy your ticket, be sure to validate it in the stamping machine on the bus after boarding.

Barzi Bus Service

Barzi BusBarzi takes 40 minutes to cover the distance between TSF and Venice, with a single stop in Mestre. (Unfortunately, Barzi's Venice stop has been moved from Piazzale Roma to the less convenient parking island of Tronchetto.)

  • At the airport, buy your ticket at the Barzi desk or on the bus. The fare is €10 one-way or €18 roundtrip. (Return tickets are valid for 10 days.)

  • In Venice, buy your ticket at the Prevedello newsstand near the Calatrava Bridge (the large modern glass bridge at the north end of the square), at the Eurolines ticket office on Tronchetto, or on the bus.

  • In Mestre, Barzi buses stop by the Plaza Hotel, which is directly across from the Mestre Railroad Station.

  • Note: The company also runs a bus from Treviso Airport to Venice Marco Polo Airport with a stop at Treviso's train station.

For more information, including timetables, see Barzi Bus Service's Airport page.
