VENICE BY CAR
Venice is easy to reach by car using these highways and motorways.
Just follow the detailed road signs.
The motorways to drive to get to Venice are:
the SS 11 from Padua-Turin (Brentana-Padana), the SS 13 from Treviso
(Terraglio), the SS 14 from Trieste (Triestina) and the SS 309 from the
Adriatic Coast (Romea). The highways
to drive in order to arrive to Venice are: the A 4 from Turin or from
Trieste, the A 13 from Bologna and the A 27 from Belluno.
The last stretch of road necessary to get into Venice by car is formed
by the Ponte della Libertà (the Liberty Bridge). It
was built in only 21 months between 1931 and 1933 and was called
Ponte del Littorio. The chief engineer was Eugenio Miozzi that projected
many other bridges in the city, among which the most celebrated is the
"Ponte degli Scalzi", located in front of the train station. At that
age, with its almost four kilometers of length, this bridge was the
longest in the world, actually it's the longest in Italy. Since 1945
it has been called Ponte della Libertà and it links, along with the Railway
Bridge (inaugurated in 1846, during the Austrian dominion), the historical
centre with the mainland. In 1849 were demolished many arcades by Venetian
patriots in order to stop the Austrian soldiers.
We do inform you that no cars, scooters or bicycles
are allowed in the historical center at all. The last place for
parking these vehicols is Piazzale Roma.
Car parkings are often booked during special events
like Redentore or Carnival and it means long queues waiting
for your turn. In this case we suggest you to go straight to
some car parkings located outside Venice, parking your car
there and then get into Venice by public means of transportation.
