Treviso Airport Buses to Venice (2021)

How to take inexpensive ATVO and Barzi ground transportation from Treviso's Canova Airport to Piazzale Roma in Venice. (Treviso Airport is the closest airport to Venice for Ryanair and Wizz Air.)

From: Treviso, Italy

ABOVE: An ATVO bus from Treviso Airport enters the Piazzale Roma in Venice. (The Calatrava Bridge on the left leads to Venice's Santa Lucia Railroad Station.)

The most convenient hotels for Treviso Airport:

Ryanair, one of several European low-cost airlines, has flights that connect Venice with London (Stansted), Liverpool (John Lennon), Brussels (Charlerol), Hahn (90 km from Frankfurt), and Girona (an airport on the Costa Brava, 110 km from Barcelona).

At least, that's what the timetable suggests: In reality, the airline uses Treviso Airport, (TSF), which is about 26 km or 16 miles from Venice, or considerably farther away than Venice's own Marco Polo Airport. (Another budget carrier, Wizz Air, also uses Treviso Airport.)

If you're headed for Venice from Treviso Airport, the easiest--and cheapest--way to get there is to take the connecting coach service. Bus times coincide with flight arrivals and departures, and the fare is much cheaper than a taxi. (It's also far less expensive than a private car with driver, which could cost more than your airline ticket.)

Two bus companies offer frequent scheduled service between TSF and  central Venice. Buses are modern air-conditioned coaches with ground-level baggage compartments.
