Getting around by air

Most flights to Venice fly in to Marco Polo Airport, 12km outside Venice, east of Mestre. Ryanair and some other budget airlines also use Treviso Airport, about 4km southwest of Treviso and a 26km, one-hour drive from Venice.

Marco Polo Airport

Venice's main international airport, Marco Polo Airport, is 12km east of Mestre.

Inside the terminal you'll find ticket offices for water taxis and Alilaguna water bus transfers, an ATM, currency exchange offices, a left luggage office and a Vènezia Unica tourist office where you can pick-up pre-ordered travel cards and a map.


ACTV Runs bus 5 between Marco Polo Airport and Piazzale Roma (€8, 30 minutes, four per hour) with a limited number of stops en route. Alternatively, a bus+vaporetto ticket covering the bus journey and a one-way vaporetto trip within a total of 90 minutes costs €14.

ATVO Runs a direct bus service between the airport and Piazzale Roma (€8, 25 minutes, every 30 minutes from 8am to midnight). At Piazzale Roma you can pick up the ACTV vaporetti to reach locations around Venice.


A taxi from the aiport to Piazzale Roma costs €50; the taxi rank is located by the bus station. From there you can either hop on a vaporetto or pick up a water taxi at the nearby Fondamente Cossetti.

Water Taxi

The dock for water transfers to the historic centre is a 10-minute walk from the arrivals hall via a raised, indoor walkway accessed on the 1st floor of the terminal building. Luggage trolleys (requiring a €1 deposit) can be taken to the dock.

Private water taxis can be booked at the Consorzio Motoscafi Venezia or Veneziataxi desks in the arrivals hall, or directly at the dock. Private taxis cost from €110 for up to four passengers and all their luggage. Extra passengers (up to a limit of 12 or 16) carry a small surcharge.

If you don't have a large group, there is also the option of a shared Venice Shuttle. This is a shared water taxi and costs from €25 per person with a €6 surcharge for night-time arrivals. Seats should be booked online at www.venicelink.com. Boats seat a maximum of eight people and accommodate up to 10 bags. Those opting for a shared taxi should be aware that the service can wait for some time to fill up and has set drop-off points in Venice; only private transfers will take you directly to your hotel.

Alilaguna Airport Shuttle

Alilaguna operates four water shuttles that link the airport with various parts of Venice at a cost of €8 to Murano and €15 to all other landing stages. Passengers are permitted one suitcase and one piece of hand luggage. All further bags are charged at €3 per piece. Expect it to take 45 to 90 minutes to reach most destinations; it takes approximately 1¼ hours to reach Piazza San Marco. Lines include the following:

Linea Blu (Blue Line) Stops at the Lido, San Marco, Stazione Marittima and points in-between.

Linea Rossa (Red Line) Stops at Murano and the Lido.

Linea Arancia (Orange Line) Stops at Stazione Santa Lucia, Rialto and San Marco via the Grand Canal.

Linea Gialla (Yellow Line) Stops at Murano and Fondamente Nove.

Treviso Airport

Ryanair and some other budget airlines use Treviso Airport, about 5km southwest of Treviso and a 26km, one-hour drive from Venice.


Barzi Bus Service The most direct service to Tronchetto in Venice (€12, 40 minutes, one to two per hour from 8am to 10.30pm) from where you can jump on the monorail to Piazzale Roma. Buy tickets on the bus or at the desk in the arrivals hall.

Azienda Trasporti Veneto Orientale Offers a service to Mestre and Piazzale Roma in Venice (€12, one hour, one to two per hour from 5.30am to 11.30pm), but it takes a more circuitous route than Barzi Bus Service.


Line 6 of ACTT connects Treviso Airport with Treviso train station (€1.30, 20 minutes, two to three an hour from 6am to 10.30pm), from where there are frequent services to Santa Lucia train station in Venice (€3.35, 30 to 40 minutes, half hourly).
