Venice Airport Information
How to get from the airport to Venice City
Buses provided by ACTV
ACTV stands for Association of Corporate Travel Veneziano. These buses make several stops along the way and therefore the average trip takes 25 minutes or more as this duration depends on the number of stops a bus has to make and whether it is during peak or off-peak hours. ACTV buses have considerably large luggage racks.
Expect to pay €5 for one-way and €9 for the round trip. The ACTV company offers several payment options; you can combine their regular tickets with their Tourist Travel Cards/Vaporetto (waterborne services) passes/Public Transport Tickets which cost €3 for one-way and €6 for round-trip. A second combination, the AEROBUS & NAVE, offers an AEROBUS (route 5) trip from Venice to the Airport or vice versa plus a 90 minute ride for waterborne services excluding the Clodia, Fusina and the Alilaguna waterbuses all for € 10. Tickets are available in the arrivals section.
The above passes or tickets are used for transportation only. However, there is another one, the Venice Connected Card, which caters for public transport, public toilet use, Wi-Fi access, museum visits and car parking depending on the season at your time of visiting.
The first ACTV bus leaves the Venice Airport at 4:08 am followed by another at 5:10am and at 5:40am. As from 6:55am a bus leaves every fifteen minutes. The last bus leaves the airport at 1:10am.
Buses Provided by ATVO
The second option is the express greyhound-style buses from the ATVO . These are nonstop buses that operate around the Piazzale Roma and are thought to provide the shortest trip to the Marco Polo Airport from Venice seeing as this journey usually takes around 20 minutes.
Tickets for these buses can purchased in the arrivals hall and also onboard; expect to pay around €5 for a one-way ticket and €9 for the roundtrip. The first ATVO bus leaves the Venice Airport at 7:50 am followed by another at 8:20am and subsequently at 20 and 50 minutes past every hour until 11:50pm, plus another last one at 1:00am during working days.
Beware though that there is another ATVO bus at the airport which travels to Mestre. You therefore need to check the bus you are boarding; take bus number 5 to Venice and the number 15 to Mestre.
Transport from the Marco Polo Airport to Venice/Piazzale Roma as well as to other Veneto destinations is available via the ATVO Fly Bus.
ATVO buses have relatively ample space in the belly of the bus. This is however meant to be shared among all passengers and as such this bus transport option is not suitable if you have plenty of luggage on you. Besides the tickets available at the airport you can also find them in the tabacchi or tobacco stores or at newsstands.
