Mestre is a populous region flanking the iconic waterways of Venice. Established as a fortress town during the Roman age, Mestre was once a separate entity until its merger with Venice in 1926. The borough underwent significant growth after World War II, evolving into an urban hub with notable connections to Venice via the Freedom Bridge. It served as a vital port during the Venetian Republic, a connection valued between the mainland and the island city.

It also boasts an assortment of attractions, like the historical Palazzo da Re and the majestically renaissance Duomo of St. Lawrence. The M9 Museum and the bustling city’s transport system offer a taste of modernity in this historical borough.
