VE Mestre station signVenezia Mestre, on the Venetian mainland, is one of the two major train stations in the comune of Venice, Italy. (The other is Venezia Santa Lucia in the city center.) Venezia Mestre serves three groups of travelers:

Mestre isn't a huge station, but it does have quite a few platforms, and it has all of the services that you'd expect at a station in a small city. It's also a busy place, with an estimated 85,000 transit visits and 500 trains per day.


A Google aerial photo map shows the station, downtown Mestre (above the railroad tracks), and the adjacent dormitory and industrial suburb of Marghera (below the tracks). The green "B" on the map points to the station entrance. You can zoom out and use the map's directional controls to see the rail and road causeway between Mestre and Venice.
