Venice Marco Polo Airport (aka Venice Tessera airport, IATA code: VCE) is an international airport located on the Venice mainland, close to the lagoon (the two runways are built ON the lagoon).
The name of    the   airport was   chosen in honour of Marco Polo, a Venetian merchant traveler who introduced Europeans to Central Asia and China.
It's the fourth busiest airport of Italy by passenger traffic, the 49th in Europe (8.620.000 passengers in 2011)
