Venice Italy Parking? I am your guide to help you park the car safely near Venice. You will be surprised that there are many options for parking. This way you have the most time to enjoy the beautiful city.

Venice is easy to do by car. From Lake Garda, your passage in Italy, or simply from your holiday address in Northern Italy.

It is, of course, much more pleasant to drive directly to Venice, park the car, walk a bit, and you are there. And you accept if you still have to go by train or bus.

Venice Italy Parking

No.1. Venice Italy Parking: The closest parking is at Piazzale Roma. The most expensive with prices between €25 - €35. But most comfortable if you go to Venice and want to enjoy your time in the city.

Around this square, you have several parking garages to park your car in Venice. It can be quite a busy square because all buses, trams, and taxis arrive here with tourists and other day-trippers. But the entrances to the parking garages are clearly marked.

No.2. Car Parking in Venice: Other parking spaces are also close to Venice. That is at the Tronchetto parking. This is on a reclaimed piece of land where cruise boats depart, and a lot of storage/transshipment takes place to transport things further in Venice. With the 'PeopleMover' (Monorail), you can quickly reach Venice from the Tronchetto. Parking at Tronchetto has a fixed rate of €22 per day.

Another area with spacious parking spaces is behind the terminal buildings of the Marittima cruise basin. This is the best option if you will leave the city on a cruise. Here you can park the car for a more extended period.

No. 3. Cheaper parking in Venice: The mainland has a few examples. You can find more affordable parking spaces there. For instance, in Mestre or Marghera there are also hotels where you can park. In addition, you can quickly get to Venice by train or bus.
