Motorhome Hire Venice

Venice is an ancient city whose history begins with the end of the Roman Empire when some started fleeing the Lombards settled in the swamps of the Venetian lagoon. Today Venice is one of the most visited cities in the world, with its canals and its towers that peep through the narrow crowded houses. Visiting this city means getting lost in the narrow streets flanked by the canals to find yourself in characteristic squares such as Santa Margherita, the centre of Venetian nightlife. Walking through the ancient buildings, we suggest you stop for a cocktail in one of the many “bacari”, small venues where you can sip a spritz and eat the local “cicchetto”, a small stuffed sandwich with many flavours.

Getting to Venice

 Venice is connected to the mainland by a single road: the Freedom Bridge. The easiest way to get to Venice is by plane. Marco Polo Airport is only a few kilometres from the city and is well connected to Piazzale Roma. The main airlines are easyJet and Ryanair, which have lower prices during the summer (flight time from London: 2 hours). The main motorway that leads to Venice is the A4. Remember, you cannot park in the city centre, so your motorhome rental in Venice must be left in one of the adjacent parking lots. The Venezia Santa Lucia railway station is located on the Grand Canal and allows you to easily reach all major Italian cities.

Parking in Venice

It’s not possible to park in the historic centre of Venice. However, there are two car parks just outside the city entrance: Garage San Marco (campervan price for 4 hours: €20, campervan price for 24 hours: €40) and Tronchetto Parking (campervan prices: free for 30 minutes, €25 for 12 hours). A suitable alternative to save money is parking in Mestre, just outside Venice. We recommend the Park Costa AVM (1 hour: €2, 24 hours: €12) or the Saba Mestre Station Car Park (1 hour: €2.40, 24 hours: €15).

The best time to hire a campervan in Venice

Weather graph for average temperatures in Venice
Average temperature in Venice per month

Venice resides in the middle of a lagoon, in the north of Italy. Because of this, its climate is mild but very humid. You often wake up with a thick fog that thins out during the day, leaving room for pleasant weather. It’s a very variable and often unpredictable climate. Added to this is the phenomenon of high water levels that are very frequent in November.

In summer, you will experience high humidity, with temperatures ranging between 35-38°C. During these months, the city is filled with tourists from all over the world, and it is difficult even to walk. The winter months can be very cold, with temperatures ranging between 5-10°C. The best time to hire a campervan in Venice is in spring when the streets are less crowded with tourists and the temperatures are mild. Autumn is not recommended due to frequent rainfall and an increased probability of high water.

Summer is a time full of fun and celebration; however, the months of July and August are the most touristy and therefore the most expensive of the year. To hire a motorhome in Venice in winter and summer can be expensive; the best time is in spring. In fact, March and April are the least expensive months of the year and are perfect for taking a nice walk in the city or exploring the islands nearby. In addition, between February and March, there is a world-famous event that is a must-see at least once in a lifetime: the Venice Carnival.
