Beautiful historic tower overlooking the main square of Mestre. In some periods of the year it can also be visited free for events and exhibitions.

This is an old clock tower in the historic centre of Mestre. Unfortunately we visited on a Sunday and it was closed. Pity. Still it was nice to view from outside.

The souvenir shops and other shops are very good for tourist. We were a group of 8 persons having afternoon snacks and tea at this place. Very good to walk around.

There are not many activities in Maestre but coming to the square and seeing the clock tower and other activities is quite entertaining. The better food establishments are off the side streets - the good near here is a bit over priced.

An interesting building with external steps access that gives a specificity for such a place. The tower is not so high as we expect for a tower that can inform people about the time so is not so easy to observe the clock.

If you have a free evening in Mestre it's a great place to visit. Wide and big italian square with great ammount of shops and restorants. You can make a lot of great photos here.
