The water taxis leave from the same dock where the Alilaguna boats also go. A water taxi to Venice costs between € 110,- - € 250,-. You can also book a Taxi to Venice in advance. You will pay such a price per group, but you often discover many more activities via Getyourguide.

Another opportunity is to share a water taxi from EUR 32 per person up to a maximum of eight people and ten suitcases/bags here. You can find this (sharing) departure point at the far left of the quay.

The cheapest way to get the airport to Venice is the bus; shuttle service with ATVO busesClick here if you want to buy tickets online for the ATVO Bus from Marco Polo airport. Every 30 minutes they are driving from the airport via Mestre to Piazzale Roma. The journey takes 25 minutes and costs about € 15, - for a return ticket and a one-way ticket € 8,-. The ticket includes large luggage.

Another bus option is the cheapest. This option is the Aerobus no. 5This bus-service is operated by ACTV the public transport carrier around Venice. Pay attention! Taking large suitcases onto the bus is not always aloud. The ticket costs are about € 8.

...Discount card to travel by public transport

Book the card in advance? If your hotel is in Venice or you are only there for a day, you will walk a lot! Check my page about all transport in Venice > In all other cases I do recommend the OV card.

The Tourist Travel Card is a day pass that allows you to use public transportation in Venice freely. In Venice, it gives access to all boats (vaporetto), the tram to Mestre (and vice versa) and also most of the public transport buses from ACTV around Venice. The Travelcard is also valid on Lido and in Mestre, both on the bus and on the vaporetto boats.

** You cannot use the Travelcard for the Alilaguna and the above bus services. The Travel Card is not valid on ATVO buses and also not in the ACTV buses to and from the airport.

Tip! When you use more than 3 times the Tourist Travel Card you can save on your budget!

From Airport 'Treviso' to Venice 

From the airport, in Treviso (TSF) the best is to take the ATVO shuttle buses. They leave every 45 minutes to Venice (26 miles). This transfer takes more than one hour to get in Venice or Mestre (55 minutes). Buy your ATVO tickets from Treviso Airport here. And yes, I used this bus quite often. Relax though. Air conditioning and you can store a lot of luggage. It is still a long drive, but comfortable.
