Waiting in the lounge to disembark. Seems like very little is happening. But we aren't in a rush as can't check in to our hotel until 1pm. Back at Hotel Delle Rose. (See comments). Walked into Mestre town. Very nice locals town with attractive piazza where we had coffee. The Venice canals come all the way over to Mestre so there are boats in the …
... just slowly getting ready for our trip to Venice. Amazingly the campsite we randomly picked is only a 10 minute bus ride to Venice so we jumped on and rode over the bridge and then we were there. Arriving this way the first impression is nothing much but we set off to get our Vaporetti (water bus) and caught the first one that came along and this took us around the very un-scenic part of Venice at first, we got to see the food deliveries ...
... in the day. It houses all the "opulence" of the times - and also the prison! There was more very ornate artwork (folks were flashy way back when) and some really cool armor & weapons! Of course we also crossed the Grand Canal at the Rialto Bridge, which was full of tourists trying to take a picture. One of the most frustrating parts of this trip is trying to walk through a million people trying to take ...
... afterwards we were free to wander the rest of the Palace. It is a magnificent building with some sensational rooms decorated with Tintorelli paintings and lots of gold everywhere. After the tour ended we had lunch on the waterfront - Katie had yet another margherita pizza (I've tried to stop counting, rating 7.9/10) and I had a delicious pumpkin soup! Strange thing to find in Italy, but it was excellent.
Then we set off in earnest to find a mask for Katie. ...
... the first stop. We wandered the streets almost on our own and enjoyed the sunshine and window shopping. We found a shop that seemed to have a few nice items and wandered in. We were greeted by a sharp dressed gentleman with a low key manner. With every item we eyed he seemed more interested in us knowing how it was made than in getting us to try to buy it. He was clearly proud of the wares made there and his enthusiasm was infectious. He told us the day ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsDelle Rose Mestre
This hotel is in an excellent location. In the quiet suburban street yet only a 10 minute bus ride from the Piazza Le Roma.
The owner is very helpful and has good English.
The room is clean but not fancy. With air con and shutters so quiet and cool.
The good thing about staying in Mestre is that you can get away from the madness of Venice and the thousands of tourists for a while. It is only a 20 minute flat walk to the centre of Mestre with a good convivial atmosphere and bars and restaurants surrounding the large piazza there. The area also some good small restaurants closer to hotel and good shops. A supermarket on the corner.
The breakfast is very good and there is free wifi throughout.
