  Marco Polo International Airport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Marco Polo Venice Airport (IATA: VCE, ICAO: LIPZ) is an airport located on the Italian mainland near Venice, Italy, in Tessera, a frazione of the commune of Venice nearest to Mestre that, before Fascism, was an autonomous commune.
It is considered one of the three most important airports in northern Italy (with the two international airports of Milan, Malpensa and Linate).
The airport is connected to the nearby railway station of Venice-Mestre and to the bus terminal of Venice-Piazzale Roma by scheduled bus services, and to Piazza San Marco by water taxi.

 Marco Polo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Marco Polo was later captured in a minor clash of the war between Venice and Genoa, or in the naval battle of Curzola, according to a dubious tradition.
Marco Polo was finally released from captivity in the summer of 1299, and he returned home to Venice, where his father and uncles had bought a large house in the central quarter named contrada San Giovanni Grisostomo with the company's profits.
Marco Polo is also believed to have described a bridge that later was the site of the Marco Polo Bridge Incident, a battle that marked the beginning of the Second Sino-Japanese War.

 Wikinfo | Marco Polo
Among other omissions, his account fails to mention the unique Chinese written form, chopsticks, tea, foot binding, or the Great Wall whose actual form was built afterwards, and Chinese records of the time do not mention him, despite the fact that he claimed to have served as a special emissary to Kublai Khan.
Given the extreme level of record-keeping in China at that time, this is a source of strong suspicion, but he lived with the Mongols who ruled the country.
Many relevant sources do claim that he was born in the Venetian island of Curzola in the Adriatic (currently Korcula, Croatia) and even that the Polo family was Slav in origin.
