When will Venice (and Italy) reopen for travel?
Venice Airport Buses (2020)
How to take public ground transportation from Marco Polo Airport to Venice's historic center.
Venice Marco Polo International Airport is on the Italian mainland at Tessera, just north of Venice. It's a 20- to 25-minute road trip from the Piazzale Roma, the main automotive point of entry into Venice's historic center. Two different bus routes are available, and both are inexpensive:
Buses to Venice-Mestre Railroad Station
Both ATVO and ACTV run frequent buses to the railway station in Venice's suburb of Mestre, on the mainland, where express trains connect with cities in Northern and Southern Italy. See our Mestre Airport Buses article for details.
Other destinations in the region
ATVO operates buses to the Lido di Jesolo, Treviso, Caorle, Aviano, and other towns in the region. These depart from a pedestrian island outside the D doors of Marco Polo Airport's arrivals level, near the Venezia Piazzale Roma and Mestre airport buses. For more information, see the ATVO Web links on page 2.
If you're headed for a military base, such as the U.S. Army Garrison at Vicenza, check with the base ahead of time for a shuttle timetable and departure location.
If you're with a tour group, look for your guide or tour leader in the arrivals terminal, or follow the instructions that you were given with your tour materials.
