"Venice because the streets are full of water. In soft-shell crab season there's nothing like them at the Trattoria al Gatto Nero on Burano, the Cipriani is still one of the best hotels in the world and you can teach children the history of art by cocktails like Rossini (prosecco with strawberries), Bellini (prosecco with peach juice), Canaletto (prosecco with raspberries). And Carpaccio is a painter as well as thinly sliced beef with anchovy sauce."
Airport parking for your Venice holiday
Flights from Manchester to Venice are operated by several airlines. Marco Polo International airport (Aeroporto di Venezia Marco Polo) serves Venice, however some airlines operate to the Treviso airport in Treviso. Make sure you are clear about the airport you will be flying to as some airlines simply list the destination as 'Venice'.
We have a great range of parking at Manchester airport if you're planning to fly directly to Venice from Manchester airport. If you're taking a non-direct route then don't forget that we have parking at 25 other UK airports, and if you can find cheaper within 24 hours, we'll let you park for FREE.
Holiday Extras is so much more than car parking. We offer a fantastic selection of optional extras to make your arrival and parking experience that little bit easier.
For a small charge we will text you traffic information and shopping discounts directly to your mobile phone ensuring you miss those traffic hotspots. We will even give your car a thorough valet both inside and out if you wish. If you would like to read more about exactly what we offer to improve your parking experience take a look at our parking upgrades page.
