Mestre Train Station

From: Introducing Mestre-Marghera

VE Mestre train station

The Venezia Mestre Railroad Station is on the southwestern edge of Mestre, within walking distance of the town's main shopping and entertainment district. It handles more than 500 trains and 85,000 transit passengers each day, and trains between Mestre and Venice run every few minutes from early morning until late evening.


Hotel Bologna Mestre

The area is safe and free of sleaze, and there are three good, reasonably-priced four-star hotels directly across the street from the station. Several cheaper hotels are also within a few blocks. (See our Mestre Hotels - Where to Stay article for details.)


Auto-Garage Touring in Mestre

If you've brought your car and aren't staying at a hotel with a garage or lot, you can use any of several parking facilities near the railroad station--including this retro garage with an entrance decorated in gold mosaic tile. (For advice on where to park, see our Parking in Venice article.)


BikeSharing Venezia - Stazione VE Mestre

Bike Sharing Venezia has an automated rental location at the Mestre railroad station. The service is available to anyone with an IMOB CartaVenezia card, including tourists, upon enrollment and payment of a 15-euro annual fee. Use of a bicycle is free for 60 minutes; after the first hour, cyclists pay a small fee.

When ready to leave the station, go to the zebra crossing and cross the Viale Stazione to the Via Piave, which is the next stage in our virtual walking tour of Mestre and Marghera.
