Venice Airport Marco Polo - VCE - is an international airport situated on the mainland, 8 km north of Venice centre. In 2015, almost 8 751 000 passeengers passed through the airport which makes it the fourth busiest airport in Italy.
Getting from Venice Airport to the centre
There are several ways to reach the centre of Venice from the airport. The easiest and the cheapest way is certainly taking the airport bus which runs every 20 minutes between the airport and the centre. It is also possible to use the public bus services as well as the public boat services. As one would expect, taxi services can also be used. Regarding private transfers, they are available by car and by boat; private boat transfers are rather expensive so a car transfer will do. Here are some of the advantages of taking a private car transfer:
⇒ Door to door service (No long walks with heavy suitcases)
⇒ In most cases cheaper than taxi
⇒ No waiting at the airport, the driver is there when you arrive, even if your plane is delayed.
⇒ Vehicles available for larger groups as well (you always travel together)
The travel time beween the airport and the centre depends on the chosen type of transport but it is between 20 and 35 minutes. When travelling from the centre to the airport bear in mind that it is not good to take the local bus since it makes several stops along the way so the journey might take longer.
