Are you looking for the best way to get to Venice from Treviso airport?
There’s an increasing number of people arriving at the Venice Treviso Canova airport (TSF) instead of Venice Marco Polo airport, which is the main Venice airport.
In fact, if you start looking at the flights online, you might find some good flight deals with companies such as Ryanair and Wizz Air to Treviso instead of Venice.
Just to clarify, this only counts when flying in from European cities such as London, Manchester, Paris, Brussels, Dublin, Bristol, Berlin and a few other cities!
If you’re flying from New York, for example, your arrival airport will still be Venice Marco Polo, unless you’ll stop somewhere else in Europe before getting to Venice.
