Parking in Mestre

by kanevsky

Please, does anybody know any not very expensive parking in Mestre? We are coming to Venice from Padua and going to spend 2 nights in Venice. From Venice we are going to Ferrara. I'm thinking now may be it make sense to park a car in Padua next to railroad station and go to Venice by train for a 2 days? Could somebody advise me on it, please?

till you get some specific response from experienced VTers, I can say with some confidence that Mestre is relatively inexpensive and car-friendly than many other Itlain cities

You'll find a list of parking places in Mestre (in English) here:

An alternative might be to change your hotel to one in Mestre with parking available. Venice is easily and quickly accessible over the causeway by train or bus.

I cannot say whether leaving your car at Padua railway station for two nights would be feasible or advisable, I'm afraid.

I would not leave the car in the streets near the train station in Padova for 2 days, but there is a couple of parking lot there that might be suitable.
look here http://www.apsholding.it/parcheggi/pagina.asp?ind=protetta.htm&m2=menu_2.html#park2 The one I am talking about is number 7 Multipark, it is very close to the train station and cheap.
Depending on where your hotel would be in Padova, it might also be convenient to leave the car in one of the commute parking lots by the tram line. If you tell me where you will be in Padova I can tell you more.
For istance, in Via Guizza, at the southern end of the tram line, there is a big free parking lot. It is easy from there to reach the train station as the tram can take you there in 20-30 minutes and also, on your way to Ferrara, you will be by the highway entrance that will take you to the autostrada Padova-Bologna.

As far as I have experienced...

by LittleWonder

As far as I have experienced the tourist season lasts all year in Venezia, so don't expect to have the city to yourself.
The best trick is to stay overnight in the city center and wander about in the evening, as most of the tourists are there just for a day and leave when the evening comes. Close to midnight we bumped into a gondoliere finishing his last round and talked him into giving us a ride for 1/3 of the normal prize (he must have had a bad day). During the half hour he drove us slowly through Venezia's chanels we saw two gondoliere parking their gondolas for the night, and a couple of people crossing a bridge.
It was midnight, it was full moon, and we had Venezia all to ourselves... :o)

Venetian Memorials

by mrclay2000

Once you stroll beyond the Piazzetta San Marco past the Palazzo Ducale, you've essentially left "classic" Venice. This used to be a place where foreign ships cast anchor when doing business with the Venetians.

Arrive by water!

by steventilly

Arrive by water!

If you arrive by road or rail you cross the causeway from Mestre and end up right at Venice's most unimpressive part - the Railway Station and Car Park! If you can, come by boat - there are vaporettos straight from Venice Airport and also from surrounding places such as Punta Sabbioni (Lido De Jesolo).

Queues

by diageva

If you want enter at the top building of Venice you will have to make long queues. Its usual to see big groups coming suddenly ... they use to make another queue.

Next time I promise to make those queues to get inside San Marcos ...

I didn't want to wait any queue, not for this time, only I waited a little one at the tower Campanille at San Marcos Square.
