Venice Car Rental
Compare & Save on car rental in Venice
Arguably Europe’s most romantic city, Venice’s spectacular network of canals gives this incredibly popular tourist destination an otherwordly feel. It’s not hard to see why this is one of the most visited cities in Europe, with tourists slightly outnumbering the locals. Situated along a lagoon, and unchanged in 600 years, the whole of Venice and its lagoon is a designated Unesco World Heritage Site. Like stepping back in time in an instant, this 5th century city is spread over 118 tiny islands, the whole thing forming an extraordinary architectural masterpiece on the north-east coast of Italy.
Things to Do in Venice
The world’s only pedestrian city, the best thing to do in Venice is simply stroll. Exploring on foot, you’ll find unexpected surprises around every corner – from tiny chapels to ancient statues, the best cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted to the most breathtaking canal views. And it’s the water that’s really the biggest draw here. No visit to Venice is complete without taking to the water.
Top 3 Must See: Venice
A night time canal ride
The Rialto Bridge and Market
Take a walk over Venice’s most famous bridge, the eyecatching Rialto, and head just west to explore the delicious local treats and crafts of the Rialto Market and Farmer’s Market. There is also an abundance of fantastic museums to check out, including the Peggy Guggenheim, the Mocenigo Palace clothing museum, the Jewish Museum, and the Ca\' Pesaro for modern art.
Drive Around Venice
There certainly isn’t much room for the motorcar in this half-submerged city, but renting a car does provide an easy way to reach the city from the airport at your leisure, as well as to explore the equally beautiful surrounding areas. To visit the city itself you\'ll need to leave your car rental from Venice Airport outside the city. Piazzale Roma is the closest place to park, but can get busy – there’s also Tronchett and Mestre, where you can hop on the train into the city, or Fusina, to arrive in Venice by boat. Outwith Venice, your hire car allows you to explore such delights as alpine town of Cortina d\'Ampezzo, a former site of the Winter Olympics, as well as nearby Lake Garda, Treviso and Padova – famed for its botanical gardens.
