Flights to Venice, Italy
The city of Venice is served by 2 international air facilities, Venice Marco Polo and Treviso Airports. Venice Marco Polo is the city’s main air transport hub and is also one of the largest and busiest airports in Italy.

- Venice Marco Polo is located about 13 kilometres from Venice. A taxi ride from the airport to the city would take around 15-20 minutes at a fare of about EUR 50 (SGD 76.15).

Best Time to Visit Venice
Though a magical city all year round, summer is widely considered the worst season for Venice. From June to August, the city is absolutely swarmed with summer holidayers, resulting in both land and waterways being choked up with high human and boat traffic. The high heat and humidity are also rumoured to cause pungent smells to arise from the canals of Venice, so do yourself a favour and schedule your trip for the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn instead. Though the cooler weather necessitates slightly thicker clothing, the temperature is highly unlikely to drop below the double digits (as it does in winter) so being outdoors remains a pleasant experience. Furthermore, the added peace and tranquillity, as well as lowered hotel room rates, make the effort of putting on an extra sweater well worth it.
Film buffs will also be happy to note that the Venice Film Festival usually takes place in autumn (during September, to be exact).
Things to do in Venice
If you’re in Venice, having a gondola ride (with a singing gondolier serenading you on the way) may be the most cliched thing in the book to do - but cliches do exist for a reason. The experience of drifting down idyllic canals, under pretty arches and past the city’s famous Byzantine architectural monuments is not one that should be missed, no matter how cheesy it may sound.
