Riviera XX Settembre
As you approach downtown Mestre, you'll reach the
Riviera XX Settembre, which is a good
example of how mixed-use development can provide opportunities for people to
live, work, and enjoy daily life within the city center.
In this photo, you can see trees, bicycle
racks, apartment houses, a sidewalk café, shops, and pedestrians--all on a
car-free street in the heart of a city with a population of nearly 186,000.
An edicola stands at the junction of Riviera XX
Settembre and Mestre's commercial center. Here, you can buy newspapers,
magazines, transit tickets, and other daily items.
