Two airports serve the city, something that flummoxes tourists. When you compare and book low-cost flights to Venice, be sure to take note of the arrival airport.
Venice Marco Polo (VCE) is the main airport, located around six kilometres (four miles) north of the city on the edge of the lagoon. If you fly to Venice Marco Polo, try to bag a seat on the right-hand side of the plane as the landing views are simply out of this world.
Venice’s second airport is Treviso (TSF), 42 kilometres (26 miles) from the historic centre. Generally served by budget airlines such as Ryanair, it’s far smaller than its rival.
