Cheap flights to Venice
The 3 major sites of Venice are all packed into one tiny square, so there is not excuse not to cover off St Mark’s Basilica, Doge’s Palace and Torre dell’Orologio while you make a pit stop in the vibrant city of Venice during your European sojourn. Student Flights can get you to Venice with cheap flights, but you’re going to want to get around on a gondola when you get there – such an experience is somewhat of an institution for Venice travellers and can be quite the romantic little interlude for couples too (engagement ring, anyone?). There’s so much to do in Venice, but we suggest you pencil in a tour of the Venetian masters of art at Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the Pieta and Ca’ Rezzonico. For some nightlife action, get down to the canal-facing establishments of Naranzaria or Bancogiro or head to the Skyline Bar for a beer with a view. Climb the Campanile for a bird’s eye view of the city and take a tour of the Grand Canal stopping along the way to get a taste of the Venetian cuisine at any number of the best restaurants and eateries in town.
Depart from Australia with a destination of Venice, Italy and you will step off the plane at Marco Polo Airport (VCE) in the north of the country and located 8 kilometres north of the city centre in an area called Tessera. Marco Polo is famed for introducing European culture to Asian civilisation and it is fitting then that flights from Australia to Italy often connect through Asian countries. Once at the airport, head into the city via ground transportation options including bus, train, water shuttle and taxi. Fittingly for Venice, a water shuttle is a popular and convenient way to reach the city or main islands. To reach the train station, you will need to catch a bus or taxi for a 20- to 25-minute ride.
Italy and Australia are not connected by any direct flights and to reach Venice you will be required to make one or two stops along the way. From the east coast of Australia, a popular route is to first lay-over at either Hong Kong or Singapore (8.5 hours) before continuing onto either London or Paris (13.5 hours) to finally connect on a short flight (under 2 hours) to Venice itself. From Perth, Venice can be reached with just one stopover in Doha, Qatar in under 18 hours. Major airlines will provide food and drinks on long haul international flights. You will also be able to enjoy in-flight entertainment and even some added extras like warm face towels. For details, check out our airline guide.
