Why rent a car in Venice?

Known for its canals, but also beautiful art galleries and historic landmarks, the floating city of Venice is a destination like no other. The city’s historic center and most of the islands can only be visited on foot, but having your own ride will still be useful to explore Meste, the city’s mainland area, and to visit other nearby attractions like Verona or Padua.

  • 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

  • Doge’s Palace. Arguably the most famous building in Venice, Doge’s Palace is the former home of the Venetian monarchs and as such was the symbolic center of the Republic of Venice which ruled the Adriatic and Ionian seas for close to 800 years. Built in the 14th century, the palace was later turned into a museum that will celebrate its 100th birthday in 2023.
  • St Mark's Basilica. Another world-famous building and symbol of the city, San Marco is arguably one of the most beautiful churches in all of Italy. Built in the 10th and 11th centuries, it is known for its spectacular domes and ornate exterior and interior. The palace is at the eastern end of St. Marco Square, the busiest and most popular area of Venice.
  • Venetian Ghetto. One of the oldest of its kind in the world — in fact, the word ‘ghetto’ comes from the Venetian dialect — the old Jewish quarter of Venice is one of the city’s most fascinating areas. Unlike many other Jewish quarters around Europe, this one remains home to a large and busy Jewish community. Located in Cannaregio, the northernmost of the six main districts of Venice, it is home to no less than five synagogues, the Venetian Jewish Museum, and a number of Jewish restaurants and cultural centers.

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

  • 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. 
  • Greater Venice. In addition to the ‘main’ city, Venice is also made up of a number of beautiful islands such as Murano, Burano, and Lido. Bohemian, relaxed, and each with its own unique character, some locals and visitors will claim that these islands are more Venetian than Venice itself.

Most popular rental types and cars

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).
