Venice to Marco Polo Airport Early Morning flight


I will be at Venice for my honeymoon from 20'th and 21st of June. I'll be staying at a hotel close to the Grand Canal in Venice.

We have an early morning flight at about 6AM from Venice to Mykonos on 22nd June. Since I have to go through immigration and customs I am planning to leave by late night say 2 AM.

I would like to know whether there is any transportation available at Venice this late at night, if yes are they safe?

Or should I opt to check out from my hotel on 21st evening and check into an hotel close to the airport for the night?

If you have any other plan which you feel would be convenient for me then do let me know.

You might want to consider the Courtyard Marriott, which is right near the Marco Polo Airport:

There is no point going to the airport at 2 am as it will be closed.... Aim to be at the airport 2 hours before your flight as the desks will not open any earlier . Plus security is the same for everybody.

I just returned from Venice and had a similar situation (KLM flight to Amsterdam at 6:50am). I stayed near the airport (Hotel Park Annia, close to the Marriott). The shuttled dropped us off at 5:05 (5 minutes after the airport opened) and it took me an hour to get through the line to check baggage. Our flight ended up leaving 20 minutes later to ensure all passengers were accounted for. The logistics were very bad in the KLM queue (which also included AirFrance).

Although everything worked out okay in the end, it was very nerve-wrecking seeing the large queue.

Maybe your airline is different, however I reccommend getting to the airport at 4:30-5:00 to queue (likely via taxi). There were approx 20-30 already in line when we arrived at 5:05. Good luck!

Take a vaporetto along the Grand Canal to catch the first bus from Piazzale Roma to the airport at 04.40. This arrives at the airport just as it is opening at 05.00.
