Venice, Italia

Traffic Information

Our car hire in Venice is supplied in conjunction with our partner Win Rent. At the airport, we are on the third floor of the Marco Polo parking while at Mestre Station the Win Rent desk is just outside the station concourse. The airport is located a short drive of 15 minutes from Venice while Mestre Station is located on the mainland near the access road to the Venetian islands.

No cars or vehicles of any sort have ever been allowed in Venice itself and it is the world's only totally pedestrianised city. All the main tourist attractions and historic cities of the Veneto, including Verona, are linked by networks of major roads while alternative country routes provide a more leisurely and scenic experience.

All cars, buses and coaches have to stop or park at the entrance to Venice in the Piazzale Roma or Tronchetto car park, the largest in Europe. Parking here is expensive and in peak periods it can be hard to find a space. A better alternative is to park on the mainland and catch a train, bus or Vaporetto into Venice. The nearest station, Mestre has car park charges but you might be lucky enough to find a free spot at stations further out such as Oriago or Mogliano Veneto.

Once you have safely parked your rental vehicle you are free to wander the narrow streets and bridges of the Rialtine Islands, the main part of Venice. Don't worry about getting lost, that is part of the charm of the city and sooner or later you will come to the lagoon or a canal where you can pick up a Vaporetto and find your way back to St Mark's Square, the heart of the city. Climbing the Bell Tower in the square is a great way to orientate yourself to the city's layout while enjoying a coffee and people watching in the beautifully decorated cafes that surround the square is a must-have Venetian experience. The most popular tourist attractions to take in are the Doge's Palace, St Mark's Basilica and the Rialto Bridge. Although quite expensive, taking a gondola ride is a must in Venice especially if you are on a romantic city break or your honeymoon. The world-famous glass factories and shops on the island of Murano are just a short boat ride away.


Venice, Italia

Sixt Tip

For the full flavour of Venice try and visit during Carnival in February, one of the most popular in the world. Everyone dresses up in sumptuous period costumes and hides their faces behind beautifully decorated masks. Rumour has it, that once a mask is donned you can get away with anything. Talented craftsmen spend all year creating these extravagant masks which make ideal holiday souvenirs.
