The easiest way to reach Venice is by air. Direct flights link Venice to major European cities and there are a few direct intercontinental flights. Venice’s Marco Polo Airport is situated 10 km north of the city. The most spectacular entry from the airport into the Lido and Venice is by boat. A regular airport shuttle ferry service connects the airport with the Lido and Venice; the journey can also be made by water taxi.
