Treviso ATVO and Barzi Airport Buses to Venice

How to take inexpensive ground transportation from Treviso's Canova Airport to Piazzale Roma in Venice, or vice versa. (Treviso Airport is one of the two Venice airports for Ryanair and Wizz Air.)

ATVO Treviso and Marco Polo Aairport buses in Venice's Piazzale Roma

Basic Treviso airport bus fares:

Ryanair, one of the leading European low-cost airlines, has flights that connect Venice with cities such as 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, Ryanair operates most of its so-called Venice flights to and from Treviso Airport, (TSF), which is several dozen kilometers from Venice, or considerably farther away than Venice's own Marco Polo Airport. (Another budget carrier, Wizz Air, also uses Treviso Airport.) A smaller number of Ryanair and Wizzair flights arrive and depart at Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE), the city's main international and domestic air gateway.

If you're headed to 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.

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 Piazzale Roma), at the Eurolines ticket by the People Mover stop on Tronchetto, or on the bus.

  • You can also order tickets online.

  • 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.
