Why choose Marive Transport

The wonderful Venice is closer to the lake than you think, and our visitors are well aware of this! There are various ways to reach it and we have already talked about it in other articles: by train, by bus or with our organized tour. In addition to these, however, many visitors prefer to move independently and reach Venice by car. If this is your case, I would like to give you some tips on parking and transfers in Venice.

Let’s get to know the territory

Maybe you love traveling by car because you think it is the most comfortable way to travel, but did you know that the beautiful city Venice is completely car-free? Being built entirely on tiny islands connected by myriads of bridges, we are talking about a city that most guides rightly so define as “banned for all types of cars”.

So, what to do? Don’t panic, because if on one hand it is true that the centre can only be explored on foot or by water, on the other hand it is still possible to get to Venice by car. If you arrive from Lake Garda it is very simple, just take the A4 highway. It is so easy that many tourists actually choose this solution. The hardest part is finding a parking space in Venice, as everyone wants to leave their car as close as possible.

So, what is the result? Extremely expensive and always fully packed parking lots. There has t be a solution … And indeed, there actually is. First of all, it is good to inquire before departure and strategically choose where to park in Venice. The options are truly various. As said, you can park nearby to be immediately in the heart of the city or just outside to save a little money. Another idea could be to park even further away and perhaps arrive by boat.

I am sure that among our articles you will find the best way to get there and visit it. But if, as we have said, the option that best suits your holiday is the car, I will give you some tips on how to make the best out of it.

Finally, with the SNV Line, reserved for ticket holders to the Salone Nautico, you will run every 90 minutes from 9am to 8pm.

On the other hand, you can find several private services. Among these you can take advantage of water taxis, defined as “real floating lounges”, with an active service 24/7.
