Marghera fort was built at a location where the mainland was closest to the city of Venice for obvious strategic reasons. Both the French and the Austrians realized the significance of the place and both during the early 1800s contributed to its construction. After the unification of Italy Marghera initially kept its military prominence. However, by the end of WOI (which was a trench war) it became clear forts were not longer serving their purpose. The Italian army used the place until the 1980s mainly to store equipment and other stuff.

The fort location is now used for exhibitions and events. When I visited there was a gathering of people whose hobby was vintage cars. They proudly showed their vehicles. The waterrich setting of the fort and wooded spaces surrounding it, for me, were the biggest attraction.

This is an old military fortress, which has been restored and boasts a military museum, restaurants, bars, cat sanctuary, and places to stroll in greenery, and is used during the year for various left-wing (in the widest sense) cultural initiatives: meetings, films, theatre, concerts, performances, etc. It's positioned on the mainland opposite Venice, and sometimes offers boat trips on the lagoon.

There's a cat sanctuary! Lots of cats, friendly cats, big cats, small cats. I think there's a castle as well, but i'm not sure why you would go to it when there are so many cats in dire need of attention. Cats.

Easy to get into the city centre from here. Lots of great places to eat and drink at reasonable prices.
