Venice Airport Transportation
ABOVE: The Alilaguna airport boat offers
frequent service between Venice's Marco Polo International Airport and the city.
Venice, Italy has
become a major airline gateway to Italy, thanks to budget carriers such as
Ryanair and nonstop transatlantic flights by Delta and US Airways. If you're
arriving by air, you have several options for getting into the city. Click the
links under each airport's name below for information on Venice airport ground transportation.
Most major carriers use
Marco Polo International Airport, which is located in Tessera, just 6 km (4 miles)
from the historic center.
Ryanair and Transavia use the much
smaller Treviso Airport, which
is 30 km or 19 miles from Venice.
If you have an early flight, see my
Venice Airport Hotels article for
listings of hotels that are convenient to airport ground transportation.
For information on vaporetti, traghetti, and other local
transport, see our index of Venice transportation articles.
If you prefer taxis to public transportation, you can easily
grab a land taxi (not too expensive) or a water taxi (€80-100)
at Marco Polo Airport. It isn't practical to take a taxi from Treviso
Airport because of the distance and cost.
