A perfect place to watch the way of living of the residents. Free of cars and perfect for rummaging in special shops.

A lovely surprise to come across this amazing piazza on our pre cruise stay in Mestre. A stunning large piazza, full of lovely buildings, restaurants, shops and waterfalls. Brilliant atmosphere. An absolute gem of a find. In my opinion, much nicer than Venice!

Stopping in Mestre I thought that we would be in the middle of ordinary area but unexpectedly found this surprise just near our hotel.

The square is very large with nice buildings, especially the lovely Art Nouveau Cinema Excelsior, and a modern fountain. Lovely open space but very quiet when we visited on a Sunday.

When closed to traffic means closed to all forms of traffic, including bicycles; you have a pedestrian marvel. Add trendy bars and venues where you can enjoy a cake or two and you have a piazza made for a quite stroll.
