Mestre holidays will transport visitors into the realm of Venice, one of the world’s most mesmerising destinations. But those that ignore the lures of one of the premier locations of Italy and delve into the heart of Mestre itself will be greatly rewarded. The town retains the same charm as the canal-laden city of Venice, but with less crowds and greater accessibility.
The main Piazza, Piazza Ferretto boasts several sites that promise an insight into the town’s grandeur. The watchtower is a top site, as is the beautiful Toniolo Theatre and the customary fountain that sits in the middle of the square. Strolling around the attractive, old streets will allow you to absorb the characteristic charm of this old Italian town, while giving you the opportunity to duck into a ristorante or two.
The Doorstep of Venice
Holidays to Mestre will allow you to base yourself in the perfect location for exploring the historical city of Venice, while simultaneously providing you with a quiet retreat in which to escape the tourist crowds. There are numerous Mestre hotels that will put you into the heart of the town’s cultural appeal, while also allowing you easy access to the treasures of Venice. After a day of exploring the city’s top sites, such as the Rialto Bridge, St. Mark’s Square, the Grand Canal and sunning yourself on Venice Lido, returning to the tranquillity of Mestre will be the antidote you need.
The town has two wonderful parks that are a haven for nature lovers and those looking to take a bit of pace out of their Italian break. San Giulliano and Bissuola Park boast sporting facilities, play areas, views of the Venetian islands and outdoor concerts in the summer – a great way of embracing even more culture during your holidays in Mestre.
