ABOVE: The city-owned parking garage in the Piazzale Roma.
Again, parking at Tronchetto
is easier than struggling with the confusion at the Piazzale Roma--at least on
weekends or in high season, when lines can be horrific.
An even better option
during high season is to park on the mainland and take public transportation
into the city. For more information, including links to the parking facilities'
Web sites, see our "Parking in Venice"
Look for a deposito bagagli, or
left-luggage office, near the People Mover
station and the Pullman Bar. To check hours and prices ahead of time,
phone the Cooperativa Trasbagagli at 0415231107 or e-mail [email protected]
