VenetoCity a place for pedestrians

VenetoCity is a large pedestrian precinct. On arriving at VenetoCity, cars are left in car parks under the mounds and hills. From the car parks, vertical connection systems with elevators, moving stairways and conveyor belts provide access to the upper levels where people move around exclusively by bicycle or on foot. All the spaces you see looking down on VenetoCity from above are pedestrian areas where visitors can move about in full safety.

Coming to VenetoCity by train

VenetoCity is the first large project in modern Veneto conceived in close integration with the above-ground regional metropolitan railway system. Near VenetoCity, there is in fact a regional metropolitan railway station able to cope with a flow of thousands of passengers per day. Thanks to the station which allows passengers to be immediately at their destination as soon as they get out of the train and the high frequency of the trains themselves, VenetoCity is simple and easy to reach from the most densely populated part of the region.

As can be seen from the images, the regional metropolitan railway station is an important example of architectural quality, making it the emblematic entry point of VenetoCity for those passing by train.
VenetoCity gives priority to developing public transport in general and the rail network in particular as it has a lower impact on the environs. The new station on the above-ground regional metropolitan railway linking Venice and Padua will be served by exchange parking for 500 cars.

Coming to VenetoCity by car

Access to Veneto City will be from two large roundabouts to the east and west, from the local road network, from the Albarea motorway exits or, for cars travelling in the Venice to Padua direction only, from the Roncoduro exit. Veneto City will also be served by a number of parallel roads to the south and north in a “comb” arrangement, with a dual carriageway and a series of tangents to bring cars directly to the heart of the city and the car parks.

Once visitors have left their cars, they can reach the system of pedestrian squares and paths located at a height of seven metres. This is where the buildings are located and also the starting point for the 6 km of cycle paths (connected to the normal bicycle-accessible network from the overpass to the west).

Rendezvous point

Located between Padua and Venice, with convenient motorway exits and a station on the regional metropolitan railway system served by exchange parking with a capacity of 500 cars, VenetoCity represents an ideal natural rendezvous point for those transiting on the Milan-Venice-Trieste axis and the Bologna-Venice axis.
