About Venice

Known as one of the most romantic and interesting cities in the world, in Venice canals comprise the streets. Venice is an island-city, comprised of 118 islets tied to one another with 400 bridges, some of which are historical, and over 150 canals, all lined with beautiful historical buildings. The most famous of the bridges is the Rialto Bridge, the one that is always in the background of photographs of Venice. The longest canal stretches out for 3800 meters.

The major touristic attraction is to ride the gondola on the city’s canals. Other sights to see are the San Marco Square, San Marco Basilica, the view from the San Marco Tower, Fondaco dei Turchi, and the Ducal Palace. Motor vehicles are not allowed inside the city. Transport is mainly by gondolas or boats on the canals. 

There may sometimes be floods in Venice due to excessive rainfall. Even the San Marco square may get submerged. Therefore, the ideal time to visit is summer, where there is less rainfall. When in Venice you can also visit the Murano and Burano islands, famous for glass making. You can buy beautiful statues made of glass or famous Venetian masks as souvenirs from Venice.

There are flights to the San Marco Airport. You can reach the city center by bus or directly by boats called Alilaguna. 

Transportation to Venice City Center from Airport


Venice Marco Polo Airport

Venice has two airports, "Marco Polo" and "Treviso", but a significant number of international flights, including flights from Istanbul, are landing at Marco Polo Airport.

From the airport to the city center you have many options such as train, bus, taxi, vaporetto, car rental and water taxi.


There are two options for transportation from the airport to the city: "ACTV" buses operated by municipality or privately operated "ATVO" buses.

ACTV buses operate from 4 am to midnight every day of the week, between Rome Square and the airport. The journey lasts 25 minutes. Tickets can be picked up from the vending machines at the airport terminals. ATVO buses also work on the same line as ACTV. The bus departing from the airport operated between 7.50 am and 11.50 pm. The duration of the journey is almost the same as ACTV. If you will be staying somewhere outside Venice city center, like Mestre, you can use other routes of ATVO and ACTV.


It is very enjoyable to get to the Venetian islands from the airport with the small sea buses, which are called "Vaporetto", run by the company "Alilunga" because you will start living the Venetian atmosphere as soon as you enter the city. There are 3 separate lines - red, orange and blue; which one to choose depends on your destination. Therefore, it is advised for you to consult your hotel about which line to choose and which stop to get off before you arrival. The journey with these would not be very short. It depends on your destination, but it lasts more than 1 hour. You can get tickets from your arrival terminal. You can reach the pier of boats after a 10-minute walk from the terminal exit.


While the most convenient way to get to the city center of Venice is by bus and vaporetto, you still have the option to take a train. You only need to take a taxi or bus to get to the main railway stations from the airport. With the buses from the airport you can go to the Mestre station in 20-25 minutes and to Santa Lucia station in 35 minutes. Then you can reach the different points of the city by train. It is not a practical and preferred method as you need to change two vehicles with this way.


There is a taxi company named "Radio Taxi" at the airport. You can make reservations in advance or take a taxi to the city center or other area upon your arrival. Taxi fare would be around 40 euros to Rome Square, and 35 euros to the center of Mestre from the airport.

Car Rental

You can rent a car from the lower floor of the arrival terminals. Here you can find a total of eight company offices such as Avis, Europcar, Autovia, Autoeuropa, Maggiore, Sixt, Lacauto and Hertz. If you will only be visiting Venice city center, renting a car is not a recommended option, because you cannot take your car to the city center, where you can travel with boats or by foot. If you rent a car from the airport, you need to park it in the parking lot at the Rome Square.

Water Taxi

The water taxi, which is the most elegant and most expensive way of going to the center of Venice from the airport via the canal, is another alternative. When you book in advance, it can be a bit cheaper, but the average prices vary between 80 and 125 euros depending on where you are going.
