Shopping in Venice


 plethora of goods is stacked to whet the appetite of any enthusiastic antiques collector. Serious buyers can also ask to view the warehouse (which you can arrange to see by appointment, if genuinely interested). The owner, Michele Gervasuti, is following in his father footsteps, a master craftsman who opened the shop in 1959. They concentrate on restoration and are involved in several important projects across Venice.

Carnival masks and costumes

Atelier Pietro Longhi,
rnival costume, well this is certainly the place to shop.

Ca' Macana,
 This is one of several places where you can see how the masks are made. Leonardo Di Caprio has even been here, as can be clearly seen by the autograph in the shop's window.

CWhen you enter this shop for the first time, you will probably be rather overwhelmed. This is one of the city's larger mask and costume sellers. Here they also organise costume parties during the carnival period

Glass and crystal

La Gondola,
 Though not as upmarket as Barovier, La Gondola does not lack any initiative on their inventiveness or on the pure physical size of their objects. However, be warned, prices can at times be pretty hefty.

L'Isola has several glass objects designed by Carlo Moretti, which are well- appreciated for their elegance and finesse. Again, prices can be quite steep at times.

Department stores

Le Barche,
 Open 9.00am - 8.30pm Tuesday to Saturday and 2.00pm - 8.30pm on Monday. Venice itself is full of quaint one-off boutiques, therefore there is in fact no department store as such. However, there is a shopping mall in the area know as Mestre. It is home to several of Italy's leading stores and chains, such as Feltrinelli, the bookshop chain, Ricordi Mediastore, for CDs and music, Coin, a leading budget department store and PAM, particularly noted for its value-for-money food department. For clothes, you could also try Belfe & Belfe, which is situated on the ground floor.

Salizzada San Giovanni Grisostomo 5790, Cannaregio.  As previously mentioned above, Coin is a well-known chain store in Italy. It is a recent addition to Venice's shopping landscape, giving Venetians and tourists a canal-side shopping experience. This branch specialises in affordable men's and women's clothes, as well as accessories.
