Venice Tips, Personal Experience and your Guide to Venice Italy
With a car rental Venice Italy you can explore the Veneto area, Verona or Milan. For sightseeing around Venice, it is essential you have a car! After your arrival at the airport there will be a rental service waiting for you...
I show you how, where and some nice activities where you can go.
At the airports in Venice there are special desk to hire a car. And it is efficient to book a car in advanced. You only have to sign and your are ready to go.
Make a reservation via my trustful partner Alamo. Or compare all the rental companies including Italy's own rental services via RentalCars.com >
Marco Polo Airport is the airport of Venice. This airport is located 5 miles east of Venice. This airport receives flights from Italian cities and international.
Some flights, mainly from England and Brussels fly to the smaller airport, Treviso airport. This airport is located more than 20 miles from Venice.
All major car rental companies are available, including 2 Italian. They all have a wide range of services, but they may differ in price. You can pick up and drop off your hired car at the airports, train stations (for example; Santa Lucia) and the office at Piazzale Roma.
You can pre-book a rental car over here >. In my opinion this is the most convenient.
Don’t forget, it is impossible to use your car inside Venice. Therefore the closest parking is Piazzale Roma (San Marco Parking). This is a parking garage with a price from € 30 per 24-hours.
There is also the possibility to park your car on the artificial island Tronchetto. Turn right when you get of the long bridge from the mainland. This is the Venezia Tronchetto Parking. From there you can get easily cheap boat transportation to Venice. This parking area is cheaper with € 21 per 24-hours.
Yes, you need a license and a credit card. Tourist from outside Europe have to bring an international driving license. Italians drive on the right.
Venice offers wonderful attractions, but the Veneto area has its own unique places and villages with a lot more to discover.
The city of Padua (Padova) is just 13 miles west of Venice and is an easy drive via the A4 motorway with your rental car. I don’t recommend to drive in the historical center of this city, but park at the garages near the old down town.
Further west you can visit the fascinating city Verona. This city is known as the site of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. In the months June, July and August this place is filled with the Verona Opera.
Want a break from all the cultural impressions? Then drive to Jesolo, east of Venice. At this resort there are very nice beaches. Jesolo is easily accessible via the A4, exit San Dona DI Piave.
