Compare cheap flights to Venice
Marco Polo, located in Mestre, is the closest commercial airport to Venice. Most of the budget airlines land on Treviso Airport, 16 miles from Venice. The San Nicolo Airport on the Lido on the other hand only handles small aircraft, particularly those coming from Schengen states.
A jewel of a city
Venice is the only pedestrian city in the world so there are no cars and walking around is a great experience. A trip to Venice wouldn’t be complete without taking a romantic gondola ride and a spin in the vaporetti for your sightseeing. Stroll around Piazza San Marco and the museums there. Nearby are the imposing Basilica San Marco and the equally impressive Doge’s Palace. San Giacomo di Rialto is possibly the oldest church in Venice and distinguished by its gold accents and red pillars.
Do check out the Bridge of Sighs when you are there. There’s the Rialto Bridge and the Rialto Market where you can enjoy shopping. Take a walk along the Guidecca canal until you reach Zattere and see how a gondola is made at the Squero. If you’re lucky you might also witness how the gondolier’s pole is made.
Explore further afield. It you’re in Venice when the weather is warm, arrange to have a trip to Venice Lido. Take plenty of photos of the colourful houses in Burano. Visit Murano and tour the factory where exquisitely designed hand-blown glass items, unique sculpture pieces and personal accessories are made.
