Shopping

Shopping

Venice is a true paradise for real shopping fans: you can find everything in Venice, from souvenir shops with Carnival masks and Murano glass items, to the most luxurious high fashion boutiques.
The glass objects made in the kilns on the island of Murano by master glass blowers are an old tradition. They are made using techniques that have been handed down over the centuries. The many glassworks in Venice and Murano offer any type of objects, for all tastes and wallets; there are Venini lamps and ashtrays, vases and small colored animals. with regards to jewelry, one popular souvenir is la murrina: this is a slim round pendant in colored glass with spiral or flower patterns that is hung on a gold or silver chain around your neck. As well as the traditional jewelers’ shops in Venice there are also some shops that sell necklaces made with colored Venetian glass pearls, that can sometimes be bought loose too so that you can use them to make some personalized jewelry yourself.
While walking through the streets and lanes of Venice, you will also see a large number of mask shops. This is another popular craft item in Venice which are made in terracotta or in pottery.
If you want to take some food home as a souvenir, you can also buy some packages of typical Venetian sweets, such as the zaeti that can be bought in one of the many cake shops in Venice.
Those of you who like to do famous name shopping can instead go on a tour of the fashion streets, the most important being the famous Mercerie: this is Venice’s main shopping street that connects Piazza San Marco to Rialto and where you can find boutiques such as Max Mara, Sergio Rossi, Cartier, Krizia, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and many others too. Calle XXII Marzo is also well worth a visti: here you can find Bulgari, Bruno Magli, Versace, Damiani.
