If the flights are on the same ticket, your luggage should be checked through and you should make it. Passport control can take a while, but there's no customs if you're in transit. If the flights are on the same ticket and you miss the connection, they put you on the next flight to Venice.
You must be referring to immigration/passport control. It will be fast if there are no other arriving flights. Looks like you have a little over 2 hours to connect so it should be all right.
Be sure to pack essentials in your carry-on luggage that would hold you over for a few days. With tight connections, passengers may make the connection better than their luggage. It sometimes takes days for your luggage to catch up with you. Include the name of your first hotel on your tags, and also include your contact information inside your luggage.
Another reason to pack light and only take a carry on if possible. When in Rome recently at my hotel, a couple said they had already been in Rome for 2 nights/2 days and their luggage (Air France) was still missing. They had had a connection in Paris and their luggage didn't make it somewhere along the line.
To make matters worse, when the hotel person suggested they contact their travel insurance company so they could go ahead and buy what they needed, the couple said they didn't have travel insurance, which I found really surprising, but....
Packing light and having travel insurance: two essential things to help make trips less hassle free.
Thank you. To be honest I didn't consider travel insurance, since I'm planning this trip on my own. How do you get the insurance?
