Getting to Venice by plane
If you arrive in Venice by plane you can easily reach the historic centre with one of the many public transport services connecting Venice with its main airport, Marco Polo or with the Ryanair airport Canova - San Giuseppe.
You can always choose between a wide private transport service of car or water taxis.
From Marco Polo Venice Airport
A direct connection from Marco Polo airport to Venice (Piazzale Roma) that takes about 20 minutes; buses leave every half an hour. The ticket costs 3 euro; and includes luggage.
The buses leave outside the arrivals area on the right.
The ATVO also offers a direct connection from Marco Polo Airport to Mestre Train Station, at 5.00 euros, luggage included.

It is a public transport bus (Line 5) connecting the airport to Venezia (Piazzale Roma) and therefore makes several stops before reaching Piazzale Roma (it takes approximately half an hour).
The ticket is quite cheap - it costs 2,5 euro, but does not include luggage transport.
You have to purchase an extra ticket for each suitcase you're carrying on the bus (the same price as for passengers). Public Bus Line 15 connects the airport to Mestre Train Station.
