Parking Venice

You choose better parking areas and will get the best tips, do’s & don’ts. I’m your guide to go parking in and around Venice. 

The nearest parking places are at Piazzale Roma. This place is the closest you can get with the car to Venice. I will show you how! Did you know that there are no cars, bikes or scooters allowed in the historic center of Venice? But, where to park these vehicles? From my visitors, I got the advice that Mestre is a great area to park your car.

How closer you park a car to Venice, the more expensive it will get. Parking at Piazzale Roma is convenient, but there are plenty of other parking places. Parking outside Venice is well arranged with transport to the city. And on a day fare sometimes you can save up to € 25 a day. What do you prefer?

Via Parclick you can get cheap parking places outside Venice and book them in advance. How cool is that! With this booking platform, you're sure of a free parking spot. An excellent website for parking bookings and great service.

And people are always doubting where to park, and it is safe to park somewhere for free. You can read it in my new article >>> Car Parking Venice 

Before booking, please also check these...

You can also choose to park your car 'Undercover' in a garage at the same location. Prices differ between these options, but both have guarded parking. It is a kind of valet parking, where you have to leave your car keys for security reasons. Later I will tell you more about this.

Cross the bridge (Ponte Della Libertà), and you are in Venice! Once you arrive at the lagoon, you have to go straight ahead, and you'll get to Piazzale Roma. The road to Piazzale Roma is in a one-way direction in a loop. Drive slowly and watch where you have to be and stop on time for your parking in Venice…


Parking in Venice at Piazzale Roma will give you direct access (on foot) to Venice. Walk towards the quay where you will see the ticket office of ACTV, Atvo and Hello Venezia. Take the waterbus (vaporetto) on the Grand Canal to your hotel or Rialto and San Marco Square.

But you don't want to...

Leave the car keys in your car

The garage where you have to leave your keys is Garage San Marco. This parking garage is directly the most expensive car parking, but also one that is most close to Venice. I parked here once, and I was also surprised by leaving my keys.

Parking Venice San Marco

Parking 1 - Garage San Marco: Tel. +39 041 5232213, Day rate (24hours) € 30.00. Maximum vehicle height is 210cm.

Drive until the square Piazzale Roma and continue to the right. Often you can get a discount on the parking fee by the arrangement of a booked hotel. 

When you ask them why you have to leave your car key their answer is always that their employees have to move the car when it is necessary. Because this parking garage is so packed and there is little room to maneuver. Others say they do this to drive the car and sell the spot for the 2nd time.

My experience was exellent and secure. But I understand from many visitors that it is difficult to leave your car keys. Especially if you have luggage left behind in the car. But you can be sure these parking organizations are well insured against damage to your vehicle. Don’t worry. It is well organized. Reserve your San Marco Parking Spot here >

But, if you...
