Car parking

I am driving from Rome to Venice in October and we will be spending to nights in Venice but need somewhere to leave the hire car. Does anyone have any suggestions?

There is very expensive car parking at Piazzale Roma, at the end of the road into Venice. There is expensive car parking at Tronchetto, reached by a well-signed right turn shortly before Piazzale Roma. Both these parking stations have access by vaporetto to all parts of Venice.

There is reasonably priced parking next to the train station at Mestre on the mainland. From there, you take a train to the main Venice Santa Lucia station, then a vaporetto.

It might cost less to turn in your car at Piazzale Roma on arrival, and pick up another when leaving.

However, if you turn in your car at P. Roma, you will still pay the €26 parking fee.

You should only have to pay the parking fee if you return the car out of office hours....

Or you can park at the airport ( often there are offers ) and then take public transport in.

Parking in Mestre:


Garage Europa in Mestre is only 12 minutes by bus from Venice. The bus stop for Venice is opposite the parking garage. During the day buses No. 4 and 4/ depart for Piazzale Roma every 10 minutes until 1 a.m. At night Circolare Notturna No. 2 leaves every hour.
