Make a Holiday Apartment in Mestre Your Home Away from Home

Monuments, museums and churches are among the big attractions of Mestre, the city next to Venice.  Although overshadowed by its world-famous neighbour and often considered its mainland suburb, Mestre has a charm, history and character of its own that are well worth exploring.  Dating back to the Middle Ages, history is easily glimpsed in its ancient buildings.  That said, Mestre doesn’t live in the past: it is a lively modern city with good shopping opportunities, wide open spaces and pleasant piazzas.

Due to the town’s closeness to Venice many visitors stay in Mestre holiday apartments for easy access to the city of canals.  HomeAway has a large selection of apartments that are close to both Mestre’s main attractions and transport links to get into Venice. These are modern and well-equipped properties, and some can sleep up to seven or eight people.  Holiday villas in Mestre are also available that equally benefit from central positions, but boast large rooms and private gardens. HomeAway has holiday properties in more than 20 towns throughout the Venice area, including apartments and villas at Bibione and Caorle.

Things to do

-Architecture: Mestre has a number of notable buildings and public spaces.  On Piazza Ferretto, the main square is the 17th-century Duomo of St. Lawrence.  Inside, the frescoed dome and the carved altarpiece are among the most popular sights.  Also on the piazza is Torre delle Orologio, a watchtower that was once part of Mestre’s medieval fortifications.

-Beaches: Staying in Mestre holiday apartments also puts you in proximity to some of the area’s best beaches, including the small islands located around the Venetian lagoon and the Lido. This is known as the beach of Venice and there are several here.  Many are private belonging to hotels, but there is also a pleasant public beach.

-Nightlife:  Mestre has a nightlife that swings to its own beat.  In addition to the restaurants and bars there is a small clutch of nightclubs and cinemas.  Some of the late night dancing spots are away from the city centre and can only be reached by car.

-Shopping:  One of the benefits of a visit to Mestre is that prices in the shops are less expensive than those in Venice. Centro Le Barche is a shopping mall that’s home to well-known high street clothing, gaming, sports and jewellery stores.  There’s also a coffeehouse and a supermarket. The mall is connected to Mestre’s main plaza by a street lined with bargain shops.

Weather in Mestre

Mestre can be enjoyed at any time of year.  Spring and autumn are very pleasant with clear blue skies and warm temperatures.  January and February are the coldest months where the temperatures can drop to below zero.  The heaviest rains fall between December and March.  The summer sees very hot temperatures, but the prospect of some rain is never too far away owing to the nearby Dolomite mountain range.

Travel to Mestre

To reach holiday villas in Mestre guests have two airport options.  The closest is Venice’s Marco Polo airport.  Alternatively, holidaymakers can fly into Treviso airport, a 50-minute bus journey away.  Inside Mestre, buses and trams are among the most popular ways to get around. Rental cars are an option too, especially if tourists want to travel further afield, but note that Mestre’s centre is pedestrianized.  There are regular buses between Mestre and Venice.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      This was a perfect base for our short stay in Venice - only 20 minutes taxi ride from Marco Polo airport and right next to a tram stop which took us into Piazzale Roma in Venice within 15 minutes. The apartment was clean, bright and fresh and had everything we needed for our three night stay. Silvia met us when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful. There are small shops nearby and the apartment is only 10 minutes walk (or a couple of tram stops) from central Mestre with restaurants and supermarkets. So long as you don't mind being quiet between 10 at night and 8 in the morning as this is a residential area (which was fine for us as a family of 4), this is a fantastic (and much more affordable!) alternative to staying in Venice itself. Very happy :)
