Airlines that Fly to Venice Marco Polo
Venice is one of the world's most visited cities, so it will come as no surprise that Marco Polo Airport is served by many of the biggest airlines. While you can find plenty of year-round flights to Venice, many airlines, especially North American ones, offer primarily seasonal service, including Air Canada, Air Transat, American Airlines, Delta, and United. However, most European airlines offer flights year-round, including Air France, British Airways, KLM, Alitalia, and Lufthansa.
What to Expect When Arriving at the Airport
Aside from a small corner of the city where the bus and train stations are located, the only way to get around Venice is by boat or foot. When arriving at the airport, perhaps the easiest, although most expensive, way of getting to your hotel will by via water taxi. If your hotel is on a canal then the water taxi will be able to take you right to the door or as close to it as possible. Vaporettos (water buses) are also available and are much cheaper, although they run along pre-determined routes and likely won't take you right to your hotel. You can also take a bus, which will drop you off at the edge of the city, although you will have to walk or take a water taxi or vaporetto for the rest of the way.
Marco Polo Airport offers decent, if not quite spectacular, services and amenities. You can find some restaurants, bars, and retail shops, as well as three lounges, but the main reason people come to the airport is to obviously get to Venice itself, so you won't be spending a great deal of time here. Conveniently, there is free WiFi and a currency exchange.
What to See and Do in Venice
There's no shortage of things to see and do in Venice. If you're on a romantic trip with your significant other then a gondola right along the Grand Canal is a must. The Doge's Palace, the Campanile, and the Basilica di San Marco, all of which are located on beautiful San Marco Square, are architectural landmarks not to be missed. For art, don't miss the Galleria dell'Accademia di Venezia and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. At the end of the day, however, the best thing to do in Venice is to simply wander and get lost in its enchanting and timeless streets and alleyways. And when it comes time to hitting the bed after a long day of sightseeing, let Skyscanner help you find a hotel for the night.
