Terminal Fusina Parking
When other parking lots near Venice are full, Terminal Fusina's 1,500 parking spaces on the mainland offer a convenient alternative--and you can even commute to the city center by boat.
T is a port area on the Venetian Mainland, just south of Mestre and Marghera. It serves as the arrival and departure point for car ferries between Venice and Greece.
Terminal Fusina also has a campground, Camping Fusina, that was designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa and offers a full range of amenities (including mobile homes, bungalows, a restaurant, a pizzeria, a grocery store, and a swimming pool).
In addition, Terminal Fusina has--and after you've parked, you can hop on a or pedestrian ferry that will take you to central Venice in 20 minutes.
