Aerodrome Overviev


Set on the Venice Lido, a few minutes by water taxi from St Mark’s Square, Nicelli Aerodrome is one of Europe’s most delightful city airports.
It serves second fiddle to the international airport – Marco Polo – on the other side of the lagoon, yet it is beautifully located and its terminal building is a strikingly handsome design from 1935.
Set between the lagoon, a medieval church and other historic buildings, the airport can be reached on foot, bike or boat.

For the English BBC it is classified as the third among the 10 most beautiful airports in the world.
