Treviso Airport is located 25 miles (40 km) north of Venice and is mainly used by low-cost carriers like Ryanair and Wizz Air.
The airport is officially called Canova Airport, after the Italian sculptor Antonio Canova, although it is widely referred to as Treviso Airport. The installation is truly small and is impossible to get lost in. Every year it transports a little more than one million passengers.
