Hire a car in Venice
Venice is a dreamlike city that no photograph can truly capture.
Each year, millions of visitors cram into the city’s maze of narrow street, checking this foremost bucket list destination off the map. Capital of Italy’s Veneto region, Venice has remained very much the same since the Renaissance and medieval times.
Built across more than 100 small islands, with over 400 connecting bridges and 180 canals, the city has focused on maintaining its historical roots, rather than modernization. With so many intriguing things to see, simply getting lost will bring you to somewhere amazing.

Things to note
This city is all canals, there are no roads. No motorized vehicles, not even bikes or scooters, are allowed in the city, only boats. Don’t be a bad tourist and try to drive down the Grand Canal as a pair did in 2016, you’ll not only upset the locals, but the chances are you’ll incur a fine as well.
There are loads of driveable places to see outside the lagoon. Whether you’re day tripping from the city or starting a week long Italian road trip, Venice is a beautiful place to start. Note that parking on the edge of the city, at the Piazzale Roma – a public square – is expensive. Pick up your rental only when needed to save money.
