Barzi Bus connects Treviso with Venice and Marco Polo Airport

Barzi Treviso-Venice airport bus

Barzi Bus Service, a coach line that has operated in the Veneto region since 1954, now offers two airport-bus routes between Treviso and Venice:

Airport Line 1 connects Treviso Airport with Venice's Piazzale Roma, with an intermediate stop at Mestre Railroad Station. Total travel time is 40 minutes, and a one-way adult ticket is  €7. (If you're returning within 10 days, you can buy a roundtrip ticket for  €13.) 

Airport Line 2 runs between Treviso Airport and Venice's Marco Polo Airport, with an intermediate stop in the center of Treviso (across the street from Treviso's railroad station). Travel time between the two airports is 30 minutes. A single ticket costs  €8, while a roundtrip is  €15.

Travel is by air-conditioned coach with underfloor baggage compartments.

  • Note: Treviso Airport (TSF) is the so-called "Venice" airport used by Ryanair, BelleAir, Transavia, Wizz, Germanwings, and SkyTrain. It's located on the outskirts of Treviso, a pleasant and historic town about 26 km or 16 miles from Venice. (TSF shouldn't be confused with Marco Polo Airport or VCE, the main airport for Venice.)

Venice isn't just a city of churches, museums, masked balls, and 15-euro Bellinis at Harry's Bar. It's also a great playground for children--including preschoolers like our grandson Jack, who visited us for several weeks and had a wonderful time exploring the city.

We took the video below in the Campo San Polo, where Jack had an encounter with a dog and made friends with a local girl:
