Flight - Two airports serve Venice, Aeroporto
di Venezia Marco Polo, and Treviso (which is quite
convenient to central Venice). Many airlines fly into
Venice as it continues to be one of the most popular
tourist destinations. The fact that there are a number
of airlines means that fares are competitive and you
should shop around to find the best deal. Try some
of the online air ticket suppliers and do your research
to find out what are the big discounts and what days
are the best to travel. You can then decide whether
you will go to Treviso or to Venice Marco Polo. It
is always worth doing a bit of homework on your flights
and you can then plan your itinerary around that.
In all around 40 airlines fly to Venice Marco
Polo International Airport with direct services
from many countries.
From the UK, apart from charter flights (many of
which offer seat only fares), there is British
Airways and Easyjet to Venezia Marco Polo
from Gatwick and Ryanair from regional airports and
Stansted to Treviso. In January 2005 British Midlands
launched a direct flight from Heathrow to Venice.
Although Venice is a major city
destination, becasues of the number of airlines competing
on the route, the airfares are quite reasonable. With
the low fares airlines especially, it is best to book
early and get the lowest fares.
