Venice Mestre Station stands on the mainland part of the city, linking it to intercity service to Milan and other regional lines. It also has a rail link to the Santa Lucia Station on the island of Venice itself. It stands in the suburban area of Mestre amid housing and industrial units to the north of the city, heading towards Marco Polo airport. Visitors who hire a car from Venice Mestre Station find it's very convenient for the road network: the A57 motorway passes close by and the SS11 crossing to the island is easily reached. This less frantic part of the city has spacious parks, normal shops and reasonably priced hotels, unlike the crowded tourist island to the east.
If you hire a car at Venice Mestre Station you are, of course, very close to one of the most acclaimed sights of Europe. It's easy to reach the main San Marco island of Venice from the station via the SS11, crossing the famous lagoon on ‘The Freedom Bridge'. You must stop at Piazzale Roma, although parking here will certainly be more expensive than in Mestre. Other options are to visit Venice's Lido beach island by car ferry or by a leisurely scenic drive around the shore of the lagoon. Further afield, the under-rated historic cities of Padua and Vincenza are within easy reach too.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
