Venice by car

We want to visit Venice. We will arrive by car. Where is the best place to park our car? And is it easiest to take bus or train to the city?

How far is it from the car park?

Another alternative is to park at San Giuliano and there is a boat shuttle that takes you to teh Tre Archi area - I know it returns on the hour - you need to confirm which one you will take when you go over.

Thank you for the replay!

The Redentore is the third weekend in July ( sat night) . Parking in Mestre is cheaper than Venice by along run - Ok you have train fares to Venice but they are very cheap...
