Arriving in Venice by Air

Categories: ,

ABOVE: Look to the left, beyond Marco Polo Airport's control tower, and you'll see Venice's historic center across the Venetian Lagoon.
From Venice Marco Polo Airport

departures terminal photoAlitalia, KLM, and other major airlines fly into Marco Polo Airport, also known as Venice International Airport (airport code: VCE), which is 6 km or 4 miles from the city on the Venetian lagoon.

When you've claimed your baggage, go to the money-exchange window and buy euros. Better yet, use the Bancomat (ATM), where you're likely to get a better exchange rate. (But read our Europe for Visitors article on ATM conversion fees before you leave home.)

Alilaguna airport boat photoNext, follow the signs outside the terminal doors to the Alilaguna water bus (see step-by-step directions with photos). Purchase a Venice airport boat ticket to the Piazza San Marco or any of several other stops in the historic center. (See our Venice Airport Boat article for details.)

Alternatively, you can ride an ATVO or ACTV airport bus to reach the Piazzale Roma. Buses are cheaper than the Alilaguna boat, and the Piazzale Roma may be more convenient to your hotel. (Check your hotel's map ahead of time.)

photoIf you prefer a cab, figure on paying €35-40 for a land taxi to the Piazzale Roma or €90-100 for a water taxi to your hotel. (The latter sounds expensive but can be affordable if you're splitting the cost with friends.)

It's also possible to book private transfers that include someone to meet you in the arrivals terminal, porterage service, and a van or car to the water-taxi pier. For details on these and other prebooked transfer services from our advertising partner, Viator, click here and go to page 3 of the listings.
