Made up of over 100 small islands, the Italian city of Venice is certainly one of the most recognisable destinations on the planet. Known as “La Serenissima” or Most Serene, Venice’s peaceful waterways are bound to charm. Venetians prefer to navigate the city’s waterways by boat and gondola. A hugely popular tourist destination, Venice is filled with amazing cultural landmarks of international importance, including the amazing Palazzo Ducale and the Gallerie dell’Accademia – where you can see some of the world's greatest masterpieces of Renaissance art. Travel to Venice with Qatar Airways.
Perth Airport, Australia’s fourth busiest airport, serves the west of the continent and links passengers to destinations all over the world.
Qatar Airways flights from Perth regularly travel to Doha, making this a convenient departure point for both business and leisure travellers.
The typically laid-back Australian nature makes this a very friendly airport too, with helpful staff available throughout.
Parking and transportation
Perth Airport is very business-focused, providing plenty of parking and easy transportation to, and from, the city of Perth for business users.
Long-term parking is just 10 minutes away from the International Terminal 1, and a shuttle bus runs every few minutes from the parking area to the terminal. Both short and long-term parking areas are patrolled by 24-hour security.
The Perth Airport Connect shuttle bus runs from East Perth train station, and other locations in the city, to Terminal 3. International travellers can then connect with a shuttle bus service to take them to Terminal 1. Covered taxi ranks are located outside the main entrance to the terminal.
Arriving in Perth
Qatar Airways flights from Perth leave from International Terminal 1. The terminal has a number of lounges (some of which are airline-specific). Security is tight in Australia, so ensure that you do not have any banned items in your handbags and carry-on luggage to avoid delays.
Facilities and amenities
Wi-Fi is available throughout Terminal 1 (note that there may be some not-spots in areas close to ongoing construction). There are a number of retail outlets in Terminal 1, including duty-free shops and others that offer Australian goods – ideal for buying last-minute souvenirs.
A food court provides passengers with a selection of light bites, snacks, drinks and substantial meals with an international flavour.
Unique, beautiful and historic, Venice has to be at the top of almost everyone’s ‘Bucket List’ of places to see. From the magnificent St Mark’s Square to the Rialto Bridge, its canals, monuments and iconic attractions never fail to dazzle and amaze.
Book a flight to Venice with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover that this city lives up to your expectations in every way. Passionate and glamorous, it is also a business centre for northern Italy and is still as important as a commerce centre as it was hundreds of years ago when merchants flocked to its markets to do business. Now tourists flock to its monuments, making it one of the most popular destinations on the planet.
The whole of Venice is a tourist attraction, but it’s worth seeking out those unexpected gems by exploring its labyrinth of alleyways and squares. You can also head out to the islands on the lagoon, where you’ll find everything from the famous Venetian glass studios to the fascinating mausoleums of the island cemetery, the final resting place for the city’s great and good.
Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale) on San Marco Square is a must-see, and ensure that your ticket includes the guided tour ‘Secret Itinerary’, which takes you into the heart of the building, including Casanova’s jail. Also on the square is the iconic Clock Tower – the exquisitely painted clock face is truly exceptional and decorated with the phases of the moon as well as the hours.
Sailing down the canals on a gondola is a great way to see the city, although if you prefer a more ‘hop-on-hop-off’ approach the water buses are cheap, plentiful and run throughout the city and the surrounding lagoon. Obviously, keep an eye out for the Rialto Bridge, but Venice’s other bridges all have their own unique features, including some particularly gruesome gargoyles. To see how a gondola is made, stop by the Squero (Venetian for small ship yard) across the canal near San Trovaso Church.
