Venice, Italy has become a major airline gateway to Italy, thanks to budget carriers such as Ryanair and nonstop transatlantic flights by Delta and American. 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.

Please note:

  • Most major carriers, and some budget airlines, use Marco Polo International Airport, which is located in Tessera, just 6 km (4 miles) from the historic center.

  • Ryanair  and a few other budget carriers use the much smaller Treviso Airport, which is 30 km or 19 miles from Venice.

  • If you have an early flight, see our 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 (Ä30-40) or a water taxi (€110 and up) at Marco Polo Airport. It isn't practical to take a taxi from Treviso Airport because of the distance and cost.
