The closest airport to the Prosecco vineyards is Venice Marco Polo, and there are direct flights from London City (British Airways), London Gatwick (British Airways, Easyjet and Monarch), London Heathrow (British Airways), London Luton (Easyjet), London Southend (Easyjet), Birmingham (Monarch), Bristol (Easyjet), Edinburgh (Jet 2 and Easyjet), Leeds Bradford (Jet 2), Manchester (Jet 2, Monarch and Easyjet) and Dublin (Aer Lingus).
Although the city centre can be accessed by shuttle bus and taxis, most travellers prefer the novelty of arriving in the heart of the city by water bus, and the dock is under ten minutes from the airport on foot. Tickets can be purchased in the arrivals hall or directly on board, and cost approximately 27 Euros per person return. Tickets can also be purchased on-line here for a slightly lower price. The water buses run every fifteen minutes and stop at San Marco, Rialto, Fondamenta Nuove and Le Guglie.
For the ultimate luxurious arrival, Grape Escapes can arrange for a chauffeur to meet you at arrivals and escort you to the dock in an executive vehicle. From here, you will be transported on a private high-quality wooden boat, taking a scenic tour of the Grand Canal en route to the hotel. Please contact us for prices.
Alternatively, there are flights to Venice Treviso airport from London Stansted, Bristol, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford and Dublin with Ryanair. This airport is located 12 miles from the city, and there are regular shuttle buses, which cost around 24 Euros per person return. There are also taxis always waiting at arrivals.
Due to the remote location of the Prosecco vineyards, we strongly advise having access to your own vehicle if you would prefer to stay in the countryside. Please feel free to use our car hire engine for a competitive quote.
Grape Escapes is ATOL registered, number 10831 and we would be happy to book your flights at cost, however a booking fee of £25 per person applies.
Thank you for arranging a superb and memorable holiday for my girlfriend and I.
