It is but it's going to assume the A34 id once conversion to full autostrada is complete.
Some signs already show A34.

And is it 1+1 the entire way? I'm asking because I see on Google Street View that it's also 2+2 on some sections.

I don't want to take any exit from it... just drive from Gorizia to the A4.
1+1 currently because of roadworks. A34 is the new name (it be a motorway).

I drove on A34/RA17 last week. In direction from A4 to Gorizia the whole autostrada is complete, but still you can drive only on one lane. In direction from Gorizia to A4 there are only 2 streches where autostrada is not complete (bridge over Soča river and underpass at Savogna where railway overflows autostrada- in both cases there is only final pavement missing.
But I saw something interesting, they are reparing the final strech of autostrada, between roundabout of Gorizia and national border.

When they will open both lanes it will be a really pleasure to drive there, very nice autostrada...
So if you drive there, you can go in both directions without any problems

One more thing: I will be visiting Verona. May I leave my car in this car park while walking around the city? I don't really understand what they want to say with that sign. Is it with time-limit?

Parking prohibited all day long, vehicles will be towed. With the exception of cars, inside signed spaces.
So basically, 90% of the cars there are parked illegally...

When I go to Verona, I always park here:

Not many spaces available, but I usually find some...

So if I find a free spot which is marked with white lines I can leave my car there for a few hours while I visit Verona?

Yes. It may be signed with Disco Orario, so you can leave the car there only for limited time and you have to use this:

If you planning to visit Venice... About 30 euros to park your car for a whole day at the Piazale del Roma, 5 minute walk from the ancient city centre and train station...

You spend a lot less parking at Tronchetto (9€ for 12 hours), a little farther from the city. From there you can walk or take the people mover:

You just follow the signs at the end of the causeway. They have a massive parking garage there.

The people mover is here: https://www.google.it/maps?q=45.4420...num=1&t=h&z=18

And the park is just a few meters around there.

Piazzale Roma is a good half hour walking from the very historical part of the city (Rialto bridge and San Marco square).
In every calle and campiello you'll find signs pointing to Rialto, San Marco, Ferrovia and Piazzale Roma.

Yes, but it's a 5 minute walk from central station and where all the boat- busses go. And it looks pretty old and historical immediately after that...

Yes, the whole Venice is historical, but 90% of tourists think they visited it well after just seeing San Marco and Rialto. You need at least three days to see this unique city.
And I don't recommend to take a boat unless to see islands or far away places like Sant'Elena. You'll miss the unique architecture and streetlife of the city.

I visited Venice three years ago. My brother made the same trip back in June, and he saw a man falling onto the Canal Grande (Great channel?).

And back on topic, don't forget the famous pine trees in the middle of E70 between Venice and Padua, bogdymol.
