Car Hire

Car hire is an essential part of any trip to a foreign city – except in Venice. While most people are aware Venice is a city on the water, fewer may realise that there are no cars at all, anywhere in Venice as there is simply nowhere to drive around and consequently nowhere to accommodate them within the city.

There are car parks around Venice, Piazzale Roma and Tronchetto offer car-parking facilities for arriving and departing from although prices for parking long-term, anything in excess of 24 hours in fact, can be quite expensive therefore if you are travelling around Italy or Europe by car generally, this will be your best option but if visiting Venice solely, you might have to ask yourself if there is any necessity to hire a car at all whilst in the city.

If you’re intending to see more of the mainland however, and car-hire is a must, the airport and tourist information offices in the city will be able to accommodate you

Did you Know?!?

Venice is connected to the mainland by The Ponte della Libertà bridge which was opened by Mussolini in 1933 and is the only means of road transport into the city.
