The Marco Polo Airport is the nearest and the only airport in Venice. A 12-kilometre drive from the city, most of the flights that arrive at this airport are from other European cities.
Once you reach here, you can opt for a motorboat ride to the Saint Mark Square or you can take a bus to Venice. The journey will not take more than an hour and is quite comfortable.
If you prefer, you can take a taxi, but pay attention because it can be very expensive!
If you plan to reach Venice by bus, note that the parking of the bus and the only bus station in Venice is Piazzale Roma. Once you reach here, you need to take the water transport (which is closely located) or you can visit the city on foot.
You can follow Autostrada 4, A13 and SS11 which are the major routes to Venice from different parts of Italy.
The Santa Lucia Station is located within the town of Venice and is the main mode of transport that is often used by people to travel to different cities in Europe.
The terminal is well-linked with not just the Italian cities like Rome, Milan, Florence and Padua but other European cities like Austria, Germany, Paris and London (via the most popular train, the Orient Express).
