VENICE VCE AIRPORT - Your ultimate guide.
Arriving or departing Venice Marco Polo on a clear sunny day can be stunning. Get your timing right when it's high tide and the city looks like something from Atlantis, it's quite breathtaking.
When you start to descend or climb during your flight the landscape features surrounding the area are a sight to behold, you will see the mountain region of the Dolomites, the Venetian Lagoon and also the Adriatic. Simply stunning!
We found Venice Marco Polo Airport quite nice, it’s modern, light and airy.
It’s not a big airport but a modest size.
Points to note here are, if you need to recharge your electronic device we would advise doing it land-side before you check-in as once you pass through security control there is only one charging station in the departure lounge.
Another important note to remember; when you reach passport control and you are an adult you need to enter a scanner to scan your face but children are exempt from this procedure, only adults. For children, it is a manual check only.
The staff seem reasonable and friendly but not a lot of them speak English.
There are good retail outlets at the airport, a duty-free and some nice cafes and restaurants serving good pizzas if you like pizza.
Within Venice airport they have good mechanical walkways which help you speed along, one thing we did notice is there were not lots of announcements you had to keep checking boards for the latest information so please keep a good watch for them.
Seating around the airport seemed fair and the cleanliness was to a good standard.
Overall, a nice experience here.
