Parking at Garage San Marco or Tronchetto

by kywhiskey

Which is a better garage to park in Venice - Garage San Marco or Tronchetto? Garage San Marco is slightly more expensive and they say you have to leave your keys in the car which is a concern for security. Does anyone know how they secure your car if you leave the keys in it? Which is easier to catch a water taxi from? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Although I have not driven to Venice, I am sure Garage San Marco no doubt want your keys so that they can either a) park your car for you or b) move cars around as required. I doubt there is any issue with security whatsoever (I doubt they would be in operation for very long if there were!).

Their site (in P Roma)makes accessing the vaporetti (water-buses) and the much more expensive water-taxis very easy indeed.

Tronchetto parking is on a separate islet, and you will need to take a vaporetto or water-taxi from the island to reach the main city.

http://europeforvisitors.com/venice/articles/tronchetto_parking_garage_2.htm tells you how to reach Venice from Tronchetto.

http://www.actv.it/english/home.php will give you timetables and routes for both vaporetti and land buses (to/from the mainland).

We parked always at Tronchetto. You reach it very easy. The Vaporetto is the best way to go into the centre. I prefer a tourist day card. So you can have an additional sightseeing tour at the great channel. The palazzos are so wonderful and this tour gives you a lot of nice scenes for pictures.

Best wishes

Travel Tips for Venice

the San Marco Square

by Martino100

You can't miss it when you are in Venice: the San Marco Square. Here you can find the San Marco cathedral which you must visit when you are in Venice. The San Marco Square is packed with pigeons. When you put bread or corn in your hand they will come and eat it out of your hand.

Venician gull

by nighthawk

Since I visited the Pretty Seagull's Club pages of Aroman I try to spot a seagull and frame it ... this is not the best shot but Venice can t be captured in a tight frame ... at least the bird sat still long enough ;-)

Giardini publici

by croisbeauty

The main entrance into the Giardini Publici (the Public Gardens) is from Via Garibaldi, which is the only street (via) in the whole town of Venice. As Francesco (Effetti) explained to me, all other streets of the town are called campos, cale, etc, exept the one which is named after Garibaldi. Very interesting, you have to admit it. The green area of Public Gardens was created in Napoleonic times and altered in the 19th century. The large pavilions are location of the Biennial Exibition of Contemporary Art.

Traghetto - The cheap gondola.

by breughel

Next to our hotel was one of the 7 Traghetto crossings of the Grand Canal.
Ours was going from Campo Santa Sofia, close to the Ca'D'Oro, to the Pescheria the fish market.
These are old gondolas stripped of their brocaded chairs and luxury trimmings. They are rowed by two oarsmen: one who stands in the back like a traditional gondolier, the other closer to the bow.
From my photo you can see that they transport a dozen persons standing in the boat.
That's precisely what I don't like, standing in such a gondola which is lying rather low on the water.
At that moment of my photo there were no waves from the vaporetto's or other motor barges; but what if some standing passenger looses equilibrium? Swimming in the Grand Canal might be an unforgettable travel souvenir!

For those who want to take a chance the traghetto works from 7 - 8 h to about 18 - 20 h. Some have a siesta stop; most don't work on Sunday.
Price was 0.50 € could be 0.60 € nowadays.

A detailed street map

by clairegeordio

If you intend to explore Venice's maze of streets (which you should to see the real Venice), with the intention of getting from one destination to another, then a detailed street map is essential
