Car Rental in Venice
General Information about Venice
Venice is a beautiful city in Italy and it is one of the most interesting and lovely places in the world. There is no other city like Venice. It has 180 canals, 450 bridges and magnificent palaces. It is rich in museums and historical buildings of great artistic and cultural importance.
Elegant Venetian buildings and palaces peer over the ancient maze of narrow streets and labyrinth of canals that contrive to make this a unique town. The historic centre is divided into six quarters (sestieri). These are: San Marco, Dorsoduro, San Polo, Santa Croce, Cannaregio and Castello.
The airport of Venice is the Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE) and is located 8 km (4.9 miles) north of Venice near Mestre. You can arrange a rental car to be waiting for you there when you arrive in this beautiful town!
Rent a Car in Venice with Economy Car Rentals
Tourists naturally flock to Venice to experience its inimitable charm. The downside of this can be felt in the narrow streets and cramped piazzas of its sought-after areas.
A good way to get to know a more personal side of Venice is to saunter through its romantic back streets and residential quarters. To get around Venice you can walk and pay for the 'expensive-but-worth-it' gondola, water bus/taxi or a regular taxi is officially banned in the lagoon city. The most pleasant time of year to visit is late March into May, with clear spring days and fewer crowds. September is the next best in terms of weather, but October is quieter. Flooding occurs in November and December, and winter can be unpleasantly cold - although seeing Venice under a layer of snow can cast the aura of a fairy tale.

Enjoy Venice with your Car Rental
Some of the places that you can visit are Ponte dei Sospiri "Bridge of Sighs" that leads towards the prisons. The name of the bridge refers to the sighing of the prisoners when looking at the water and the world of freedom outside their barred windows.
When you follow the route over water, you will end up at the Pozzi, the cells for the real tough prisoners. You can also spend some time in Piazza San Marco. This spacious square remains impressive to every visitor. Whether it is packed with tourists, or nearly deserted in the early morning hours, this is one of sights you will remember for the rest of your life.
Looking for romance? Stroll the Piazza San Marco after dark, treat yourself to a cup of hot chocolate, and dance under the stars to the music played by live orchestras entertaining a relaxed crowd of sidewalk cafe patrons. You can also visit Palazzo Ducale that housed Venice's former governmental departments. The main entrance of the palace, the Porta della Carta, is one of the most bombastic Gothic works in Venice.
Whatever you choose to do and wherever you choose to go, your stay in Venice will be more comfortable and enjoyable if you rent a car from Economy Car Rentals!

It took me over 45 minutes to locate the Rental Company because it_s not directly at the Metre Train Station_ and I would have liked a map from the company for my destination. The people there were incredibly helpful and I got a free upgrade since my vehicle of choice was not available. I also appreciated renting the vehicle with less than 15 hours notice and the ability to drop it off at another location. Overall positive_ but directions on the internet to locate the company could be improved. Thank you.
The service was very good and the car was like it was new but it was a bit smaller from how it was described and I recommend it to my friends.
Overall great experience but they need to pay more attention to their customers. We waited several minutes for the person who would accept our car to finish his personal conversation with a friend before he paid any attention to us :(
