Mestre Station Parking

We are driving into Venice for a weekend stay in mid June. We planned on parking at the Mestre Station. My question is, can anyone account for parking availabiilty and cost at that location. I have heard 5 euro a day. If that is true I can't imagine that parking would be easy to find. Any thoughts?

I've heard that as you drive in to the parking there are two lanes, and one takes you to the parking and one takes you on a long drive. Anyone know it well enough to give specific directions?

Why would you want to park at the train station? You have to pay for it there! Street parking is free & safe, and the area around Viale S. Marco is just right for it: no limitations (like in "neighbourhood residents only"), no fees, no problems to find a space. You can park on any of the side lanes, or within the designated spaces on Viale S. Marco proper. Take bus no. 12 into town that runs along Viale S. Marco and ends on Piazzale Roma.

Sarah, I'm not sure what a bus ticket normally costs (for the ACTV, the public transport company of Venice, I'm already a local since I'm there so often). But they're inexpensive, perhaps 1.50 Euros or something like that; just google "ACTV" for details. No. 12 is running along Viale S. Marco, and you can park in any side lane, presumably towards Venice. Please use Google Maps or www.viamichelin.com for figuring out how to arrive precisely, they're far more reliable than any description I could give now (I simply recognize the turns I have to take, but don't know any street names).

Sorry, "presumably around the end of the Viale towards Venice". I'll never learn to preview.
