Plan your travel to Padua


Padova is well connected by train, mainly from Trenitalia, Italo and Deutsche Bahnhof.


Use the Milano-Venezia (A4) motorway (toll). The Italian motorway system can be searched here.


The best connected airport is Venezia Marco Polo (VCE); at about the same distance from Padua you can also use Verona – Catullo airport or Treviso – Canova airport.

Venice (“Marco Polo”)

Verona (“Valerio Catullo”)

Treviso (“Canova”)

From and to the airport

The easiest solution is to book a seat on a taxi shuttle that will bring you to your hotel directly. This service needs to be booked 24h in advance.
Alternatively, you can reach the nearest train station by bus (see ‘by train’ below for train schedules).
A convenient long distance bus connection, yet one with a limited schedule (e.g. not running at night), is available between Padova and Venice Airport. The schedule is accessible here. Leaving stop is on the left box (e.g., ‘VENEZIA AEROPORTO MARCO POLO TESSERA’) and arriving stop is on the right box (e.g., ‘PADOVA AUTOSTAZIONE’, which is the main hub with taxi stands and train station nearby).
A taxi stand and several car rental booths are present in all airports.
