My holiday is nearing so I thought I’d share some useful vocab and tips for your future travels to Italy!
I’m going to talk about the two Venice airports are they are the ones I have used the most (on this trip I’ll actually be flying into Bologna so if I notice anything noteworthy I may share it in a future blog post!)
Tips: arriving at the airport
There are two airports located near Venice, the Marco Polo and the much smaller and incredibly more cramped Venezia-Treviso.
The Marco Polo is actually near Venice, the Treviso airport is very out of the way but tends to be much more used by budget flights during peak season (from Ireland anyway).
Based on my own experience, I would recommend you try to get a flight to the Marco Polo airport if at all possible, as it is much more conveniently located, with better transport links, and is much closer to Venice.
The Marco Polo airport appears to only operate on certain times of the year though, so be aware you may not always be able to get flights, depending on the time of year.
