Thank to all...the train sounds like a great idea.
If you are just going to be there for the day, the cheapest place for parking is across the street from the train station in Mestre. Seems as tho it's only 5 euros or so to park for the day, and to then take the train into Venice. It's secure, and has a parking attendant. I don't remember if you have to leave a key. Hope I answered this in time for you, Steve, we've been traveling.
