The Nave de Vero is a large, new shopping
center in Venice. The shopping paradise is a few
kilometres south of the Mestre train station in the
district of Venice Marghera on the mainland. It is a very
modern shopping center, many shops sell clothes. In some
shops the prices are very cheap, partly cheaper than in
many other european countries.
Shops and gastronomy
The open architecture with lots of glass
of the new shopping center is worth seeing. There is not
only clothing, many shops sell other things like
electronics, sports articles, toys, books, household
goods, drugstore articles and much more. You can also find
an Apple Store in the new shopping center. WIFI is free in
the Nave de Vero, as are the parking spaces and toilets.
Some famous shops for clothes:
Benetton, Desigual, Geox, Jack & Jones, Levi's, Pull&Bear,
Tommy Hilfiger and Zara.
A big food court with Mc Donalds is
also available. The DON PEPPE offers good, fresh pizza.
The restaurant Old Wild West is also popular with American
burgers, steaks and BBQ ribs. KIKKO KAITEN SUSHI offers
treadmill sushi and other Asian dishes. Also a Gelateria
(ice cafe) and several snack bars are present. The prices
in the gastronomy of the Nave de Vero are according to our
impression similar to those in England or Germany.

The direct access by public transport is somewhat more
difficult than to the other large shopping centre of
Venice, the "Porte di Mestre" in the north of the city.
Bus 13 departs every half hour from the city centre of
Mestre to the shopping centre. However, as far as we know,
the buses of line 13 do not run on weekends. There is no
direct bus from the centre of Venice on Sundays. The final stop of
line 13 is less than 100 metres from the entrance of the
new shopping centre of Venice.
The final stop of the tram line 2 (T2) "Via Salamonio" is
about 500 meters away from Nave de Vero. Many locals walk
from the tram stop through a small industrial area to the
shopping centre. From Venice old town you can take the
tram of the
other line (T1) and change to Mestro Centro. From Venice
(Piazalle Roma) the other shopping centre Porte die Mestre
is better accessible by public transport as there is a
Be careful, you get no tickets from the drivers on the bus or
tram in Venice. Tickets are available at the train
stations, tobacco shops, lottery shops or kiosks.
