Corso del Popolo
Theis a major thoroughfare on the southeastern edge of central Mestre. It's a few blocks to your right as you face Mestre from the main entrance of the train station.
The street has a number of fairly large, modern hotels such as the Delfino and its sister property, the Ambasciatori, which cater to business travelers, tour groups, and visitors with cars. (Given a choice, we'd pick a hotel closer to the railroad station or in the city center. See "Mestre Hotels" for advice on where to stay.)
Although the Corso del Popolo isn't our favorite street in
Mestre, it does have a few redeeming properties: Many of the sidewalks are
arcaded, there's a large and excellent és that serve light
ACTV public buses offer frequent, inexpensive service along the Corso del Popolo to the Piazzale Roma in Venice. (Buy a ticket before catching the bus, and validate it immediately upon boarding. You can purchase tickets at the Hellovenezia office in downtown Mestre, from newsstands and tobacconists, or--quite often--at hotel reception desks.)
