Without trying to state the obvious, you can’t drive right into the middle of Venice (unless you have a car that turns into a boat?!).
There are, however, a number of parking options as you come off the Ponte della Libertà bridge (this is the bridge that takes you across to Venice) and onto Tronchetto island.
The biggest car park here is Tronchetto Parking, which has 650 parking spaces (400 inside, 250 outside). You can find the latest rates below:

Once you have parked on Tronchetto you can walk into the city centre, which is roughly a 35-minute walk into the San Marco area of the city.
Alternatively, you can get a water taxi to take you to wherever you want in the city. (you are in Venice after all!)
