Porte di Mestre Shopping Centre (Venice)
Travel comfortably without queues, buy tickets online beforehand:
The shopping center in the district of Venice is a long building, the shops are on the ground floor and on the 1st floor. The toilets are free of charge.
Shops and gastronomy
Probably the biggest shop in the Centro Commerciale (Italian for shopping centre) is a huge supermarket Auchan.
As in all shopping centers of this kind in Europe, a large part of the stores sells clothes and shoes in different price ranges. In our opinion, the prices are partly lower than in most other countries in Europe. My female companion was enthusiastic about some ladies fashion shops. Some chains are known all over Europe. These include Desigual, Deichmann, Douglas, Foot Locker, H&M, OVS and Swarovski.
