The Venetian Arsenal, has been an emblematic point of interest for the city since 1200, and linked to the Serenissima's glorious moments. It is situated in the Castello district and, surrounded by canals like the rest of the lagoon, it is not accessible by car.
Luckily Parclick helps you locate and book in advance parking spaces near the Venetian Arsenal, where you can leave your car and enjoy your visit of the historic centre. The most convenient options to park near the Venetian Arsenal are two: The first is to park at Venezia Mestre, on the mainland, and then to reach the centre by train or bus in just a few minutes. Secondly, you can park in Piazzale Roma, where you can catch a steamboat to take you directly to visit the city. Parclick offers both options, and at the best price!
The Venetian Arsenal takes up a substantial area of the Castello district. Once a complex of shipyards and weapons factories that anticipated the modern concept of factory and assembly line by several centuries, today it is home to the Institute of Maritime Military Studies and the Naval History Museum of the Italian Navy, while a part is dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions organised by the Venice Biennale.
Despite the recent cultural redevelopment of its structure, the Arsenal is last example of a place that never changed its function from the Venice Marine Republic, until recent years of the Unification of Italy. The outer appearance of the complex has barely changed over the centuries, which is why today it is still a great-looking structure.
The Arsenal can be easily reached by steamboat, using one of the lagoon lines of Venetian public transport, so do not hesitate in booking your parking space near the Arsenale with Parclick. That's how you can park upon arrival in one of the best car parks in Venice!
