If you really want - or need! - to arrive by car, you can leave it in one of the car parks that are located close to Venice and then enter the city on foot or by water transportation.
Venice is easily to reach by car via the Highway (A4 from Trieste and Turin, A27 from Belluno, A13 from Bologna) and standard road (SS 309 Romea from the Adriatic coast from Trieste SS 14, SS 13 from Treviso, SS 11 of Padua).
Once in the nearby of the lagoon, take the Liberty Bridge, which connects literally Venice to the mainland.
The indications for Venice lead to Piazzale Roma, the farthest point that can be accessed by car.
Here it is necessary to park their car.
There are several car parks in Piazzale Roma in hourly or daily, but the less expensive alternative is the large parking Tronchetto island, reached by turning right path after the bridge across the lagoon.
Another option is to leave your car in Mestre - in the parking lots located near the entrance of the Liberty Bridge or close to the Mestre train station - and be in Venice by public transport, both bus and train.
