Known lovingly as “Queen of the Adriatic,” Venice is so wedded to the sea that canals act as the city's main thoroughfares, and floating in family boats is the transportation of the masses. Although the arched bridges, ornate sculptures, and imposing palaces once represented symbols of the city's Renaissance power, they now stand as romantic attractions for wise wanderers and inspired artists. But before you can reach out and embrace the sea like this fair city, rent a car at VCE—Venice Marco Polo Airport—and drive to the edge of wonder.
However, after you touch down at Marco Polo Airport, you can still drive your Venice airport rental car about eight miles southwest from the airport to Piazzale Roma on the northwestern part of the Grand Canal and park it at one of the garages.
As you search for a convenient and cheap rental car near Venice, be sure to browse beautiful accommodation, too. Our guests love these luxurious hotels, and so will you:
From the steeple of San Giorgio Maggiore to the painted ceilings of Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the city’s many historic landmarks ought to be explored on foot or by way of the canals, so leave your Venice rental car. The simple pleasure of walking along the water and looking out over the boats and colorful row houses brings its own enchantment.
When you're ready to get behind the wheel and see more of Italy, pick up your car rental near Venice and drive about 40 miles west to the university city of Padua. In the 14th century, Giotto painted the frescoes that decorate Scrovegni Chapel. And in the 15th century, Donatello put his own stamp on the high altar—and several statues in the Basilica di Sant'Antonio.
