The primary lounge at Venice Marco Polo airport is the Marco Polo Club. After going through security, you’ll follow the traffic pattern through some of the duty free shopping and see an escalator as you make your way to the windows at the rear of the terminal. Up the escalator and to the right, you’ll see a sign for the lounge. Another short walk down the hall and the door is on your left. The lounge is a contract lounge for a ton of different airlines.
While it was crowded when we arrived most folks were quiet. Since the terminal was absolutely packed it was a welcome place to hang out. Most of the seating is the same, standard comfortable lounge chairs. There are tables well-placed throughout and plenty of room to roll or park a suitcase near your table.
There was an ample selection of foods, including salads, cheeses and sandwiches. My personal favorite was the crispy (though cold) pizza). I had many a slice while we were waiting. The club has a few refrigerators that are self-service as opposed to a bar, and the selection is ample. There was bottled water (sparkling and flat), juices, beer, wine and both prosecco and champagne). There were also spirits on the counter for mixed drinks. A self-serve cappuccino/espresso machine rounded out the offerings.
There were private bathrooms on both sides of the club, including a few that appeared to have showers (they were being cleaned while we were there).
There’s also an outside patio area, presumably for smoking, that serves well for plane watching.
The terminal itself is divided up into two floors, where upstairs are mostly flights in Italy (no passport control). Downstairs is shopping and gate areas for departure and passport control. Based on the number of flights departing, there really aren’t enough seats to find a quiet place to sit, so the Marco Polo Club really was a great option in an otherwise crowded terminal.
