Right next to the plaza, worth a short visit. Free entrance. You get a small view of the plaza and the town in general and a small bit of history. There is also a nice map you can use as reference (including the islands).

The clock tower is one of the few historic structures left in Mestre and was part of a 14th century defense structure. Once there were 8 or possibly even 11 towers. This surviving tower is located at the northern end of piazza Ferretto. Though the original purpose was military, it served as a clock tower since 1573. The clock mechanism was upgraded throughout the ages.

The square is huge & spectacular, with amazing Christmas lights still on display when we visited in Jan. the clock tower has a little museum under the portico which is worth a look. Make sure to go in both daytime & nighttime.

Great square filled with locals, either walking their children, dogs or meeting friends.

Quite a few little restaurants/cafes surround the square. There is also an arcade filled with shops off the square.

Part of the Piazza Ferretto, the clock tower is a suitable landmark to meet friends for lunch.
The place to sit and have a drink with friends.

Beautiful historic tower overlooking the main square of Mestre. In some periods of the year it can also be visited free for events and exhibitions.

This is an old clock tower in the historic centre of Mestre. Unfortunately we visited on a Sunday and it was closed. Pity.
Still it was nice to view from outside.
