Location

Venice is one of the most famous, beautiful and unique Italian cities known in the world for beauty and culture. An archipelago of 120 islands closed in the lagoon, between the coast and the open sea.

Mestre is an area just outside the island of Venice. A more affordable neighbour and more residential in character. That being said it has many positives in its favour. Piazza Ferretto is Mestre’s main square and the centre of Mestre.  Piazza Ferretto has a wide variety of restaurants with outdoor seating, high-end stores and boutiques which surround the beautiful water feature and sculpture at its center.  A perfect place to be and perhaps savour a  cappuccino or a scoop of gelato. Piazza Ferretto is also home to the Teatro Toniolo, a theatre and considered an important architectural landmark, Teatro Toniolo is the hub of the arts, with its symphonies, theater, dance, and comic performances.

Mestre has a long historical past and in that time the city has built some revered and notable churches. Chiesa di San Girolamo is one of those churches. Loacted in the centre and built in 1261, Chiesa di San Girolamo is one of the oldest churches in Mestre.

San Giuliano Park is the largest park in Europe and offers something for everyone, from walking and biking paths to wonderful views of the Venice Lagoon, the Liberty Bridge, and the city of Venice across the water. It is a great place to relax.
