The fare for a single journey is 18 euros.

The fare is around 90 to 100 euros per boat. The cost goes up if there are more than 6 people.

Flights to Venice Airport
With Thomson Airways, flights to Venice mean exactly that – we fly direct to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport so you can hit the ground running.
It’s odd how some low-cost airlines offer flights to Venice but don’t actually fly there. Instead, they touch down at Treviso Airport, a tiny airstrip about 20 miles from Venice. We, on the other hand, fly to the city’s official international airport, Marco Polo. Built at the edge of the Venetian Lagoon, it’s just four miles from the city centre and is serviced by a waterbus. Location aside, it’s fitting that Venice’s airport is named after Marco Polo. What with Verona, Lake Garda and the Dolomites all within day-tripping distance, exploring is easy. Plus there are some great beaches in this neck of the woods – head to Lido di Jesolo and Bibione for the pick of the bunch.
