The best way to get to the center of Venice is by train. You can easily arrive to Mestre train station by car or train (from Brescia or Milan for example) and then go directly to Venice. The train station in Venice is Venice S. Lucia or Venice Santa Lucia.
If you arrive by car you can find in the area of the station more than one car park, as you see in the map. They are cheap because last December we parked the car for two days and we spent 32 euros.
As you have noticed in the areas there is an Hertz rental car agency in case you need to return your car. You can’t use your car in Venice!
After parking or returning your car you can walk to Mestre train station. When you enter you see the ticket machines. Choose the time of your train and then take your ticket.
It takes only 13 minutes to arrive in Venice.
Venice: it’s amazing! As soon as you exit from the station you really are in Venice and you can see its magical atmosphere.
