Petrol stations near Venice Marco Polo Airport

Depending on your car rental agreement, you may need to hand your car back with a full tank.

There is a petrol station on the grounds of the airport, so you don’t need to stress about filling up en route.

Driving around Venice Marco Polo Airport

A major road (the SS14) passes outside the airport. From here you can connect onto the Autostrada 27 and the Autostrada 57. The roads are quite large and fast, and Italians have a reputation for their relaxed attitude to road safety, so it’s important to keep your wits about you. We recommend choosing a car hire package that includes a sat-nav system.
