Venice is easily reached by car. Starting from Rome and traveling on the highway takes about five hours, in the absence of traffic and adverse weather conditions. Unlike other means of transport, traveling by car allows you to get to your destination at your leisure, especially if you make use of an NCC service, or even a luxurious limousine with “full options”, which gives you the opportunity to make stops and to visit the places you come across along the way. To get from the capital to the Laguna you cross the whole of central Italy, from Lazio to Umbria, Umbria to Tuscany, Tuscany to Emilia Romagna, and finally to Veneto. You will pass Roman and Etruscan ruins, castles and medieval forts, Renaissance palaces, immersed in the green plains, in the hills in bloom, or perched at the top of the mountains: a boundless backdrop of beautiful scenery and historical and artistic jewels to be admired.
Leaving Rome with your own private driver, who can meet you wherever you choose – be it Fiumicino airport, Civitavecchia port, or your hotel – you take the “autostrada del Sole” (A1) in the direction of Florence. From the windows you can admire the villas and the Lazio countryside; after passing the town of Orte you enter the region of Umbria, where you pass the splendid city of Orvieto, perched on a stone cliff. If you so wish, you can choose to visit Orvieto by booking a day tour with Transfers Rome.
Continuing the transfer in the direction of Venice, you cross the Chiana Valley, enclosed in the hills and the mountains of Cortona, to get to the Valdarno then Florence. Here you can stop in a roadside restaurant to refresh and buy some typical products from Tuscany.
To get to Bologna you cross the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano, walking in the footsteps of ancient peoples. On the Flaminia military road you can still find parts of the Roman road, which crossed the Apennines even in medieval times, to follow Via Francigena and visit the main religious Christian sites.
After exiting the A1 you cross the Adriatica highway (A14) to get to the A13 in the direction of Padua, which is famous for the majestic cathedral of Saint Anthony, and the Scrovegni Chapel, illustrated by Giotto at the beginning of the third century. You will find yourselves immersed in the natural environment of the Po Valley, passing the city of Ferrara, another rich centre of history and tradition. Then, having arrived in Veneto and passed the city of Padua, you enter the A4 highway, which is also called la Serenissima – the river crossing which leads to Venice. You can choose to have your limousine take you in comfort right up to piazzale Roma, the furthest point reachable by car, or to stop at Mira or another town on the Brenta Riviera. Across the river, admiring the marvelous Villas built on its banks, you can get to Venice Lido by either private boat or ferry.
