The Lido is easily reached by car by means of motorways (A4 from Trieste and from Turin, A27 from Belluno, A13 from Bologna) and highways (SS.309 Romea from the Adriatic coast, SS.14 from Trieste, SS.13 from Treviso, SS.11 from Padua). Once you have neared the Lagoon, you cross the Ponte della Libertà (the Bridge of Freedom) which links the mainland with Venice. The directions for Venice indicate to Piazzale Roma. Before P.Roma you must turn in the direction of the Tronchetto/Ferryboat for the Lido. These ferries go hourly directly to the Lido. Then drive right through the Lido to Malamocco, where you will find the first road-sign “Le Garzette” and after 1 kilometre along the Lagoon you will find the second sign, turn left.
