Three international airports are conveniently located nearby; Venice is the closest and the one with the best connections; other options include Treviso and Verona.

Venezia “Marco Polo” airport (VCE), 50 km; several destinations throughout Europe. Padua can be reached from Venice Airport:
- by individual taxi - the ride from Venice to Padua with an individual taxi costs about 100 euros.
- by collective taxi - surely the most convenient means of transportation considering cost and overall comfort. The service (Venice Airport to Padua) is run by private companies (e.g. Airservice and Landomas) at an average cost of 35 Euros per person (one-way fare). The ride lasts about 45 minutes and takes travellers directly to their hotel in Padua. Service to be booked in advance.
