Mestre has a very different character from adjacent Venice. Vacations to Mestre will reveal an intriguing history that extends back through the Middle Ages alongside an exemplary display of the modern Italian life. Head to Piazza Ferretto, the main square, to see a fantastic fountain, classic theater, and the town's signature landmark, the twelfth-century watchtower that presides over all. Don't miss the Duomo of San Lorenzo, the town's church, which dates back to the 1700s. Because Mestre is on the mainland, you can browse car rentals in Mestre and take advantage of easy, convenient travel around town.
Snag some Mestre hotel deals to book the perfect home base for festivals near the town. Late August brings the Venice International Film Festival, while springtime brings a Carnevale that has been going on since the Middle Ages. See the Vogalonga, a significant rowing event that usually occurs in May or June, or the popular Historic Regatta, which takes place on the first Sunday in September, where colorful ships line the Grand Canal and race.
Mestre might not come to mind immediately when you think of Italy, but it should; the mainland city and its canal-filled counterpart make a powerful vacation when booked together.
