Anyone Ever Used Venice Parking Garage?

Jump to last reply

Has anyone ever used the Piazza Roma parking garage in Venice? http://www.veneziaunica.it/en/content/information-piazzale-roma-car-park

We have a large, obviously American car, and we will be in Venice 2 nights. While preparing to reserve a parking place and reading the fine print it sais that "as a fire-prevention cars parked inside must be left unlocked with the keys attached". I feel like our car will be like a sitting duck sticking out among the smaller local cars.

That does not exactly inspire confidence. This means we can't leave anything in the trunk. What is to stop some kind of random mischief to the interior? (we've been "keyed" before) I'm not comfortable with this and I don't think I can sell this to my husband.

Please don't just tell me to leave the car at home and trake the train; we are already committed to car travel for this multiple-stop trip.

Can cars parked on the very top of the structure in the open maybe have their cars locked? Reviews on the Mestre car parks did not sound encouraging as far as security and my husband has mobility issues so we need to be as close as possible.

Any suggestions or other options are greatly appreciated!
