It may be a city of art and culture but, for recreational shoppers, Venice is also the perfect place to shop and discover the Venetian craftsmanship tradition up close.

Glassblowers and lace makers, marbled paper and hand crafted leather goods, jewelers at work in their laboratories: Venice has certainly no shortage of crafts shops, or high end designer boutiques. Browse through quaint little antiques stores, or appease your curiosity among elegant silks, Murano glass jewelry, masks and costumes traditionally worn during the Venetian Carnival, world renowned for the elegance of its disguises.

The Strada Nuova is flanked by an uninterrupted line of shops, while the streets and boulevards stretching from Rialto to St. Mark’s Square offer plenty of designer stores. Traditional glass bead stores are the perfect places for small gift ideas:coming in a myriad of shapes and colors, or as personalized pins, necklaces, and ribbons, the wildly popular Venetian beads are a true feast for the eyes.

If you are looking for haute couture and high end designers, the area of calle Vallaresso and the San Marco end of the Rialto bridge is right up your alley; finally, you can visit T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, known as a shopping Mecca and for its stunning rooftop views of the Canal. An upscale department store where you can not only refresh your wardrobe but also attend social ad cultural events, vis-a’-vis with the best of Made in Italy.

There are several areas offering a carefully selected assortment of clothing, watches and jewelry, as well as wines and liqueurs, and a special dedicated space to load up on beauty products and perfumes, making it the perfect setting for your luxury shopping.
