Travel Info


There are two main airports close to Udine: Venezia (Marco Polo airport) and Trieste (Ronchi dei Legionari airport).

Venice airport (IATA code VCE) is served by all major airlines. From this airport you can easily reach Udine by train. First, you have to go the rail station nearby (called MESTRE). There are convenient bus services to the MESTRE rail station (be careful to take the bus to MESTRE, not to Venice). Two companies provide the service:

  • ATVO (blu buses, more comfortable), every 20-30 minutes. Tickets: ATVO box in the arrivals hall.
  • ACTV (orange buses, less comfortable), every 30 minutes. Journey time: 25 minutes approx. for both ATVO and ACTV buses. Tickets: inside the arrivals hall.

If you want to spend some time in Venice before coming to Udine, both ACTV and ATVO lines provide also transportation services from the airport to Venice (piazzale Roma).

From Mestre railway station there are several trains to Udine. Trains run almost every hour. The journey takes about 90 minutes. The price of the ticket varies slightly depending on the category of the train (trains in the IC-Intercity category cost a little bit more than trains in the R and IR categories) To check timetables and train categories, visit the Web site of the Italian Railways. Remember to stamp your ticket before taking the train!
