Subject: Re: Venice - car pick up
Dear Carol,

Are there cars for rent at the actual train station in Venice, or must you go to the train station in Mestre? We once returned a car to the train station at Mestre, and it wasn't all that easy. But then, we were driving there.

If you can get a car at the station in Venice, that would be my choice, but I am not at all sure. If you can get it at the train station in Mestre, you could simply train or bus to that station. Airport would be easy enough, too, to get to on public transportation. BUT:

Can you get the car at Piazzale Roma? I am almost completely sure that you can, as I have dealt with car agencies there. That, to me, is the simplest choice. One simply takes the water bus or vaporetto to Piazzale Roma and the car agencies are all in the ground floor of the large parking lot. By the way, they do have limited hours, so if you rent there, make sure you know the hours.

I hope this helps, Debbie in Pittsburgh
