We are leaving Venice at 7am in the morning. Would like to book a hotel near the airport so it is easy to get there by 5am. Any suggestions?
Sorry to say that having passed through Marco Polo airport many times I am not aware of any. There may well be one or two but they are not obvious.
If you cannot find one, the reassuring feature is the Alilaguna ferry to Marco Polo starts at 4.35 a.m.. They have two routes - check on www.alilaguna.com.
If that is not early enough for you then private water taxis are always available. Check on
