If you are driving to Venice, please note that it is not possible to drive around the historic centre of Venice in any way, due to the lagoon nature of the city. Consequently, parking in Venice is also complicated, and options are scarce; in fact, there are two areas that Parclick recommends to you to park near the centre of Venice. The first is to park in Mestre, near the Venezia Mestre Station, from which many trains and buses cross the Ponte della Libertà to reach the Venezia Santa Lucia Station in 10 minutes, in the historic centre of Venice.
Another option is to drive along the long bridge to Piazzale Roma, the ultimate area in the centre of Venice where you can drive motor vehicles.
