Shopping in Venice
Luxury shops and workshops
Walking through the streets of Venice you can make shopping in boutiques or just give a look to the typical souvenir workshops. Venice offers a lot of typical things that you can bring home as souvenirs. If you prefer big name shops you have to go to Saint Mark square, where you’ll find the shops of the greatest Italian stylists: Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Versace and Missoni. Doge’s city is rich of prestigious jewellery that expose stupendous works, as Bulgari, Damiani, Cartier and Pomellato. In spite of the aristocratic appearances of the city, Venice is also full of characteristic workshops which show fine and precious cloths, unique dresses and the famous ceramic masks, utilized during the Carnival. If you love typical products you can’t go home without a velvet carnival hat or without the “furlane”, traditional gondoliers’ velvet shoes which look like funny slippers. Moreover you have to visit, even for just some hours, Burano and Murano islands, where you can find fine laces and wonderful blown glass objects.
