Why rent a car in Venice?

Venice is a great place to explore by car. The city’s historic center and most of the landmarks can only be visited on foot, but having your own ride will still be useful to explore the city’s mainland Mestre area and to visit other nearby cities and sites.

Venice Car Rental

Top ways to enter Venice

  • Venice Airport: Located just 8 km (4.9 mi) of the city center, Venice Marco Polo is the fourth busiest airport in Italy.
  • Verona Airport: Small, cozy, and less than 90 minutes drive from Venice, Verona Airport is especially active during the summer months. 
  • Treviso Airport: Just 40 minutes drive north of Venice, Treviso Airport is popular with many low-cost carriers.
  • By sea or rail: If you’re arriving in Venice by ferry, you can conveniently pick up your rental car the Port of Venice. If you’re arriving by train, you can pick up your rental car at the Venice Mestre Railway Station.

Useful city facts

  • The municipality of Venice is divided into six boroughs. The history city borough that has most of Venice’s landmarks is further divided into six areas. 
  • Venice experiences pleasantly warm summers, with sea water temperature sometimes exceeding 25 °C (77 °F) in July and August. The average air temperature in January, the coldest month, is 3.3 °C (37.9 °F).

Top destinations and activities

  1. Piazza San Marco. Venice’s most famous area has landmarks like Saint Mark’s Basilica, St Mark’s Bell Tower, and Doge’s Palace. Try getting here early in the morning to avoid the large crowds.
  2. The Jewish Quarter. Once the old Venice Jewish Ghetto, this unique neighborhood is still home to an active Jewish Community and five synagogues. 
  3. Museums and galleries. The story of Venice is incomplete without its culture and history. Galleria dell'Accademia di Venezia, the Natural History Museum, and the Naval History Museum are just some of the places where you can learn more about it.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • The islands. Spend a day on of the nearby islands like Murano, Burano, or Lido. Artistic, relaxed, and each with a unique character, some people find them to be more “Venice” than Venice itself.
  • Padua. Called Padova in Italian, this city just 40 km (25 mi) west of Venice has the Basilica of St. Anthony, the Scrovegni Chapel, and the oldest Botanical Gardens in the world.
  • Verona. Home to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, of course, but also to impressive architecture, ancient artefacts, and delicious cuisine, Verona is a great place to visit.
  • Vicenza. Less than an hour from Venice, Vicenza is a UNESCO World Herritage site due to the architectural works of Andrea Palladio. 

Most popular rental types and cars

The most often picked rental car in Italy are the Fiat Panda, although the Ford Fiesta, and the Fiat 500 are also very popular. The most often picked rental car types are economy, mini, and compact.

Further destinations

  • Slovenia, Croatia, or Austria. These three unique countries each make a worthy travel destination in their own right, but the fact that they can be reached by car in a matter of hours means they a great next destination after Venice. Note that to visit any of these three countries you’ll have to cross at least one national border, so first check with your rental car provider if they permit it. 
  • Tuscany. Picturesque, traditional and welcoming, Tuscany embodies Italy through and through, from cities like Pisa and Florence to famous Chianti wineries.
  • Lombardy. From bustling Milan to Lake Como and the Alps, nearby Lombardy offers all the right reasons to go and explore it.

From the airport is very easy to take the highway, but if you are staying in Venice it can take a long time to get to the airport. I was staying in San Zaccaria and had to take the vaporetto (which takes almost 1:20h to get to the airport).
