Venice Marco Polo International Airport is located some distance from Venice itself, which has settled on islands connected by bridges. Arriving at the airport, you need to overcome 8 km from the mainland to Venice itself. However, this opens up great opportunities - at the entrance to the city by water, many people feel their hearts freeze from the views of the canals and palaces from the Grand Canal. Every year, about 7 million city fans come to experience these emotions, admire architectural monuments, picturesque canals and gondolas, feel like a hero of romantic history and participate in the Venetian carnival. 20 km from the city there is a second airport - Treviso, where budget flights of charter companies also occasionally arrive from Russia during periods especially popular with tourists.
The airport was opened in 1960 and is named after the world famous Venetian merchant and traveler Marco Polo. Only one terminal occupies three floors and serves all flights: on the first floor there are arrival and departure areas (with points for issuing rented cars and representative offices of travel agencies), on the second - waiting rooms and passenger registration desks, on the third - airline offices. Due to the popularity of romantic Venice among Russian tourists, there are many Russian-speaking personnel at the airport who are ready to provide all possible assistance. The large airport is equipped with everything necessary for a pleasant pastime - restaurants and cafes where you can eat real Italian pizza and wait for a flight with a cup of coffee, as well as shops offering to bring souvenirs and delicacies from the trip.
The open-air museum can be reached in many ways. In particular, both land and water taxis are constantly on duty at the airport. In order to know the price exactly and to be sure that you will be met at the exit, you can take care of ordering a taxi in advance by requesting a transfer to the hotel. However, a water taxi is not a cheap pleasure, its cost can reach 100 euros, and a land taxi - about 30 euros. At the exit from the airport on the right side there is a bus stop operating from 8 am to 1 night with a half-hour interval (ticket - 4 euros). There is a water bus stop on the water side, a ticket for which will cost 5 euros. When planning to travel in the surroundings, it is worth considering the option of renting a rental car in advance, on the Bookingcar.su website, at one of the rental desks at the airport, where Russian-speaking staff will help you choose the most suitable and profitable option.
