ISLAND OF TRONCHETTO, VENICE
Tronchetto (also known as Isola Nuova, meaning "New island") is an artificial island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy, located at the westernmost tip of the main Venice island. The island was created in the 1960s, and now is used as a car park for tourists who cannot bring their vehicles into the city. The Venice People Mover connects Tronchetto with Piazzale Roma, the main Venice bus station, which lies at the edge of the city center.
On Tronchetto is where the cruise ships dock and various ferry that operate on the Adriatic Sea depart. To get to the Lide Island by car you catch the ferry behind the parking area.
