Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students.

You do realize that cars cannot be used in Venice. Having said that if you are coming to Venice by car you can park at the Tronchetto Parking Garage - you can go on line to check prices. If you are flying into Venice you can take public transportation from the airport and rent a car on the island if you are continuing on by Car.
