The floating city’s first luxury shopping centre, Fondaco dei Tedeschi...
Beside the stunning canals and romantic atmosphere, Venice is also a home to top shopping opportunities. Indulge in high quality fashion, treasured antiques, leather goods and Made-in-Italy jewelry.
From St. Mark’s Square to the Ponte dell’Accademia you can find timeless luxury staples, while souvenirs and presents can be bought north of Campo Santo Stefano. The leading names in fashion can all to be found near St. Mark’s Square: Armani, Laura Biagiotti, Missoni and Valentino all have boutiques near the square. Less expensive shops are located towards Campo San Paolo, beyond the Grand Canal.
The city also boasts a wide variety of characteristic merchandise and a strong tradition of glass and lace craftsmanship which hails from the nearby islands Murano and Burano. Via Baldassarre Galuppi is the main street of the Island of Burano where you can stop by to sample fresh fish dishes outdoors, as well as shop for lace and linens. On the island of Murano you can buy exquisite blown glass directly from the old glass furnaces.
Venice is also famous for its elegant silk, printed velvet and sumptuous brocades. Some of the most admired fabrics are the fine pleated silks made by Fortuny.
The famous Venetian masks are sold all over the city, you can find cheap, mass-produced masks, but also craftsman-made masterpieces. Stop by by the original mask-workshops to shop your one-of-a-kind Carnival mask or to create and paint your own.
