Venice Port
 
hello all:

I just found out a very important bit of information for those using the Venice Italy cruise port, Venice Terminal Passeggeri. The port takes online reservations (no money involved) for parking spaces at the port garage. They WILL NOT guarantee parking places if you don't reserve in advance.

Parking for a week cruise will set you back 90 EUROS!!! Ouch :shock:

Good thing I'm saving several paychecks for this cruise.

Are you driving your car to Italy?

Dannyboy - notice that Holly is in Germany. She may well drive to Venice

Germans are for the most part practical, Trains are a lifestyle and the fuel cost alone would be well over the cost of a train ticket to the port.

and the trains take forever!!! and fuel with the right fuel card can be cheaper, especially since I have pretty much unlimited room in my vehicle :) And the drive will be half the fun

Looks like 95 euros/week now! Given the premium cost of land in and around Venice not sure that is unreasonable? I think NYC cruise parking is US $35/day!

Obviously, you may be further away from Venice, but we took the train from Venice to Munich and it was only about 6 hours. It is a very relaxing and extremely beautiful train ride through the mountains. But yes, by German standards, the price is rather expensive, that's for sure.

I don't know if this is an option for you or not, but you might consider checking out parking in one of the towns nearby like Vicenza, Mestre, Trevizo, or even at the Venice Airport and then taking the bus or train into Venice. Might find that to be alot less expensive. Just a thought.
