Transportation - DirectionsHow to reach Venice

By plane

Venice’s main international airport Marco Polo is one of the busiest in Italy. It is also possible to get to the “Queen of the Adriatic” from Treviso Airport, which is situated to the north of Venice, approximately an hour away.

Traveling from the U.S.

There are several airlines that fly directly to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport from the United States, but most of these just fly during the high season (spring, summer and autumn) like Delta Airlines and US Airways:

  • Delta Airlines: non-stop flights from JFK Airport in New York.
  • US Airways: non-stop flights from Philadelphia.
  • Alitalia: offers connecting flights from New York, Boston and Miami.

Traveling from Europe

If you live in the United Kingdom, there are several airlines that fly directly to Venice from several cities in the country. The flight takes approximately two hours from the southern England.  

The main low-cost airlines flying to Venice are:

  • Ryanair: offers direct flights from Bristol, East Midlands, Leeds Bradfordand London Stansted.
  • EasyJet: offers direct flights from Bristol, Edinburgh, London Gatwick, London Luton, and Manchester.  
  • British Airways:connects London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Citywith Venice Marco Polo Airport.

Marco Polo Airport

The Venice Marco Polo Airport is located 4.3 miles (8 km) to the north of Venice. It is Venice’s busiest international airport.

By train

Another way of getting to the “Serenissima” is by train. Venice’s central train station, Venezia Santa Lucia railway station, connects the city with numerous countries and other Italian towns. It is an interesting option since you can take a low-cost flight to Milan and from there, take the train to Venice. 

The train is also the easiest and most comfortable way of getting to Rome or Florence, and thus a great option for travelers exploring the country.

By car

Venice isn’t the best place to drive to, since only a small part of the island is accessible to motor vehicles. Thus, you will have to leave your car in one of the following parking lots:
