Welcome to MESTRE
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG
eurocityguide.com - eurocityguide.com


Information about MESTRE Mestre is the "gateway" to the mainland for ibeing closed to the historic centre of Venice, and yet within easy reach of mainland beauty spots. Over the years, Mestre's urban layout has undergone extensive changes, particularly in the industrial area of Marghera and in many outlying villages. An ambitious project to revitalise the old town centre and its parks and gardens is currently under way. Environmental restoration schemes are planned for two waterways - the Marzenego and the Salso Canal and for the San Giuliano parkland area which faces the lagoon Mestre's old woods, starting with the Carpenedo shrublands, are also to be given e net lease of life. The town's architectural and historical assets will be restored, beginning with the fortresses with which the Venetian Republic once protected its territory. The medieval features of the town centre will also be affected by the project. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, the leafy road skirting the banks of the Sile leads to Treviso. Here it is possible to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing hour or two. A long, scenic avenue laid during the Napoleonic occupation, the Terraglio, links Mestre and Treviso. The road is fringed by centuries-old plane-trees, between the branches of which you can just catch sight of the parks of villas. The lush countryside, enhanced by the classical architecture of the mansions once inhabited by Venetian aristocrats, makes this a very pleasant drive.
