When we were flying out of Venice two weeks ago, I was delighted to see that – as part of a major airport redevelopment – the Marco Polo lounge used by British Airways passengers (it is also in Priority Pass and Amex Gold‘s Lounge Club) has been overhauled.
The two photos above and below do not really do it justice. There is now an outdoor terrace, an indoor Winter garden and decent food, and the variety of seating works well for solo business travellers as well as holidaying families. There is even a barista – you are not allowed to make your own coffee!
One other benefit from the redevelopment is that there is now a direct elevated travelator link between the water taxi dock and the terminal. You do not need to weave your way through the car park in the rain any longer. If you have been to the Marco Polo lounge in Venice before and been disappointed, I recommend trying it again.
