New York is a truly cosmopolitan city filled with immigrants and tourists from all corners of the world. Venice has been a cosmopolitan city for over eight hundred years, its trade routes stretching throughout Europe and Asia. Both these world-class cities offer something for everyone. You’ll find the cheapest flights from New York to Venice at Orbitz.com.
Three major airports serve the New York City area: JFK, about twenty miles from Manhattan in Queens; LaGuardia, six miles from Manhattan in Queens; and Newark Liberty International Airport, about twenty miles away in Newark, NJ. Taxis will cost between $40 and $55, plus tolls. If you’re traveling light, a $2.25 subway ride out might be your best option; all airports have convenient subway and bus access. Parking at the airport is fairly costly, ranging from LaGuardia’s $33 daily maximum to JFK’s $18-per-day economy lots.
Venice is served by Marco Polo International Airport. You’ll have a variety of transportation options from the airport to your destination, from bus transit to helicopter. If your hotel has a boat landing, a water taxi can take you from the airport to downtown Venice for about €95, or $114. Buses, or vaporetti, are crowded and hot, so dress and pack lightly; they are, however, much cheaper than any other option at about €7, which is less than $10. Once you’re in Venice, walking is the easiest way to get around. Piazza San Marco is a good place to get a taste of everything Venetian, and it’s also the center of Carnivale, which occurs before Lent. The Doge’s Palace was the seat of Venice’s rulers for a millennium, and by booking the Itinerari Segreti (Secret Itinerary) tour, you’ll see the off-limits portions of this historic building. Venice is always humid and often hot, with highs around 81°F in July. January lows average about 30°F. The humidity brings a lot of rain, so bring an umbrella.
New York and Venice are both fascinating cities, but Venice offers a depth of cosmopolitan history and architecture nearly unparalleled by anything else you’ll see in Europe. A trip to Venice is the trip of a lifetime. Minimize hassles and maximize fun by booking your flight from New York to Venice with Orbitz.com.
