Very nice place to walk and visit. I liked the medieval scent that flows into the air. I will reccomend to take a walk and stop for dinner or gelato

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.
