Venice Marco Polo Airport (IATA: VCE, ICAO: LIPZ) is an airport located on the Italian mainland 4.3 NM (8.0 km; 4.9 mi) north of Venice, Italy, in Tessera, a frazione of the comune of Venice nearest to Mestre. The airport was named after the Venetian traveller Marco Polo, who is considered the European rediscoverer of China.

With 6.717.600 passengers having passed through the airport in 2009, it is the fifth Italian airport in terms of air traffic.

A modern terminal, opened in 2002 but already close to its full capacity, hosts all scheduled and charter flights, including some long-haul flights to the Middle East and North America.

The airport is managed by SAVE S.p.A., a company partially owned by local authorities which also controls the smaller Treviso Airport, dedicated mainly to low-cost carriers. The stock is traded on the Borsa Italiana (Milan Stock Exchange).

The airport is connected to the nearby railway station of Venice-Mestre and to the bus terminal of Venice-Piazzale Roma by scheduled bus services, to several destinations in the Venice itself by the Alilaguna water shuttle (Blue, Red and Orange lines), and to Piazza San Marco by the express Gold Line water taxi.
