There are two local parks in Mestre which are worth visiting. The first is Parco San Giulliano, which is often used for outdoor concerts in the summer. Parco San Giulliano has a remarkable and unique view of Venice lagoon as it borders the Ponte della Liberta', what joins the Venetian islands with the mainland. Parco Bissuola is another local park, offering good sport facilities and an outdoor pool. Mestre is a very charming city, with its canal snaking across the center.

Mestre is full of small family owned pasticcerie such as bakeries. In Piazza Ferretto, you can buy little miniature deserts, called mignon- which are delicious. Tramezzini- similar to sandwiches- are also very popular, there are places where you can chose from more than 30 different types. Brioche, with your morning espresso, is another staple found in Mestre. The pizza is typically Italian, thin and delicious. Being on the coast, fish is another important part of Mestre cuisine and there are always plenty to choose from in any restaurant (beware they sell fish by the weight, so in the menu if it says €5 for bass then that may mean for 100 grams, and end up costing near €30!).
