The other Venice
In addition to this Venice, there is the
Metropolitan City, established in 2014 with a decree that replaced the Province of Venice, a very vast territory of mainland, ranging from the legendary beaches of Cavallino, Punta Sabbioni, Jesolo, Caorle to Chioggia, from Venice-Mestre to the ten municipalities of the Riviera del Brenta and to the seven of the Terra dei
Tiepolo. Even this Venice is wonderful to discover and to nominate as a scenery for great events. For some years the historic Miss Italia event has been hosted in Jeso
lo. And just think of all the events that are organised in the Venetian Villas: shows, conferences, wedding fairs, car presentations, historical pageants such as that of the Riviera Fiorita, or exhibitions and Jazz evenings, for example those organised at
Villa Widmann, along the Brenta river. Municipalities such as Mira, Dolo, Mirano, Fiesso, Stra, are small art cities much loved by tourists, they have their own identity but still interact with the Serenissima, which has to deal with a kind of odi
et amo (love and hate), in fact in Mestre, which will soon have its own M9, a beautiful museum of the ‘ 900, from time to time is proposed a referendum on the separation from Venice. Meanwhile, investments grow both for Venice and for the mainland, new hotels are born, even charming ones as Villa Barbarich of Mestre and new affiliations to international chains such as the Four Points Sheraton Venice Mestre or the DoubleTree by Hilton Venice North of the DHotels chain, offering beautiful facilities, meeting rooms, excellent catering, and, of course, the glamor of Venice.
