When we think of Venice certain images immediately spring to mind. Stunning monuments, romantic trips in gondolas, spectacular sunsets and the standout of the bunch, tourists in white socks and sandals!
But Venice isn’t just a feast for the eyes. Its port is the eighth largest in Italy for commercial traffic, and is one of the most important in the Mediterranean as far as cruises are concerned.
The number of people taking cruises out of Porto di Venezia is staggering! Especially in high season, you can only imagine the quantity of people who flock to Venice to hop on board a cruise ship, and then you have to add all the people just there to visit the city for a few days… so, even the simplest things become a bit of a trial!
As the areas where you can park your car in Venice are pretty sparse, it is extra important that you think of a quick and sure-fire solution to help organise your journey so it runs nice and smoothly.

Venice Port is in the historical centre of the city, in the lower part of the Santa Croce district, at the mouth of the Canale della Giudecca.
It is open for business 24/7, all year round, while the Stazione Marittima offers a varied service, starting with the cruise ships, on to the ferries and speedboats and coming finally to the private yachts.
There are some different zones, each one dedicated to a different type of boat:
As well as the Stazione Marittima, there is also the Porto di Marghera, on the mainland, which is divided into 6 terminals and set aside for commercial traffic, in particular container ships and petrol tankers.
