Venice, Italy: minivan rental hints
Typical models of the minivan/minibus class in Venice are: Mercedes Viano 8 Seater, Opel Zafira, VW Touran, Citroen Jumper 8 seater, Ford Galaxy 7 seater, Mercedes Vito and others.

Standard capacity of a minivan in Italy is up to 9 people (8+1 formula), traditionally providing seven or eight passenger seats. The capacity of a minibus may vary from 9 to 15 people.

Please note, that in order to rent in Italy a vehicle with capacity which exceeds 8 passengers, you would need a driving license of the corresponding category.

Minivan dimensions are quite unusual for an ordinary driver, which sometimes leads to appearance of scratches and dents during unsuccessful manoeuvring or parking. Therefore, we encourage you to order full coverage of insurance franchise during your booking, or directly at the rental office in Venice.

Before leaving the parking garage in Venice, inspect the minivan for exteriour defects and other signs of damage together with the office representative and mark the found defects found in your rental documents.

OrangeSmile.com wishes you a great driving experience on the roads of Italy!

Driving Advices for Italy – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
Do not hope that speeding will be unnoticed. There are many radars on roads, and they accurately capture even a slightest deviation from the normal speed. However, drivers also should not move slower than the speed indicated on road signs - it will certainly displease local drivers.
Driving in a state of alcohol or drug intoxication is one of the most serious violations in Italy. Violators of this rule will have to deal not only with heavy fines, but will be also imprisoned.
It will be not simple to find a suitable place for parking in the city. The majority of local streets are very narrow and winding. There are several types of parking, which are very easy to distinguish thanks to their color markup.

San Marco Square (Piazza San Marco) forms the center of Venice. This is also the lowest point in the city, and because of this the square is constantly flooded with water, especially in winter. San Marco Square is surrounded by beautiful buildings - the Basilica of San Marco , the Palazzo Ducale di Venezia , the Campanile belfry and the Marciana Library. To the right of the basilica you will find Piazetta Square that leads to the Grand Canal. The first San Marco Church was built in the IX century in order to store the relics of Saint Marcus that were stolen by Venetians from Alexandria. This church was burned in a fire, and then a new church was built on the same site. That church was destroyed in the XI century. The modern basilica is built on the foundation of that church. By the way, some historians believe that the relics stored in this church are the remains of Alexander the Great, and not St. Marcus – the relics of the great conqueror disappeared at the same time, when the relics of St. Marcus were found. The basilica has five domes and a large number of arches, turrets and other architectural decorations that have appeared over the centuries due to the treasures, brought by Venetian ships from the East. Therefore, today, one can see Byzantine silver, gold and utensils, captured during the Fourth Crusade in the XIII century, in the treasury of the basilica (Tresoro). The quadriga that adorns the pediment of the basilica was brought as a trophy at the same time. By the way, the horses on the front, which visitors see today, are a replica of the original that has been kept behind the glass since 1990.

The basilica itself has often been the victim of looting. Thus, during the capture of Venice by Napoleon, jewels that decorated the icons of the golden altar (Pala d'Oro) and the main altar of the church were stolen. However, these days the composition made of numerous medium-sized icons is in a fairly good condition. The Napoleon army also stole the front quadriga, but it was returned to Venice in 1815.
