Getting there by car
Lido is one of the easier places to get to by car in Venice. The motorways that bring you to Venice are the: A4 from Trieste and Torino, A27 from Belluno, A13 from Bologna and smaller provincial artery roads: SS 309 Romea from the Adriatic coast, SS 14 from Tireste, SS 13 from Treviso, SS 11 from Padova.
Cars need to cross the long Bridge of the Libertà before arriving in Piazzale Roma, the last piece of mainland after which lies Venice proper. Piazzle Roma is one big parking where tourists must leave their cars before entering Venice. There are few different parking lots with daily or parking by the hour. The cheapest is the Tronchetto. Turn right immediately after having crossed the Libertà bridge. If you want to take your car to Lido, there is the car ferry, called the Ferry Boat that leaves directly from the Tronchetto.
