Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE)
Close to Campalto, Mestre and Tessera, Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE) stands just 13 km / 8 miles north of central Venice, Italy, across the water. Marco Polo Airport is amongst the most significant in the whole of northern Italy and is currently enjoying a major period of expansion, a project known as the 'Venice Gateway'.
A new runway and terminal have just been constructed and further plans include a major conference centre for up to 2,000 delegates, numerous shop complexes, a hotel with almost 400 guest rooms, and also many surrounding businesses and offices, all of which will be based around a scenic lagoon. Located alongside Marco Polo Airport, the centrepiece of the Venice Gateway will be the water transport terminal, which will feature an eye-catching canopy and stylish architecture.
Schedule ATVO bus services run to the nearby Venice Santa Lucia train station, while buses also travel around the centre of Venice and areas such as the Cannaregio, Castello, Piazzale Roma and San Polo. Motorboats and water taxis (motoscafo) are also a popular and extremely enjoyable way to reach the city and operated by Alilaguna.
About Venice Tourism
Filled with literally miles and miles of canals, Venice is considered to be a city of romance and lies in Italy's Veneto region. Venice comprises a series of large islands, connected by waterways and many historic bridges. Many of the most famous landmarks in Italy reside within this beautiful and rather unusual city, such as the Rialto Bridge (Pote di Rialto), the waterfront Doge's Palace, and the stunning Basilica San Marco cathedral, which resides on St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco).
Marco Polo Airport (VCE) is close to Venice and is also near to a number of other popular Italian tourist destinations, such as Tessera, Campalto and Mestre. However, most people flying into Marco Polo Airport head straight for Venice and enjoy a cruise along the Grand Canal, or even a trip in one of the city's legendary gondolas.
