The Fondaco dei Tedeschi

Calling it a shopping mall is an understatement. Adjacent to the Rialto Bridge, The Fondaco dei Tedeschi is a majestic palace of the 13th century, which recently became a luxury department store. We can recommend it not only for its fine selection of brands, but also for its panoramic terrace, one of Venice's must-sees we told you about in the article The 10 most instagrammable spots in Venice.

Carnival masks
Carnival masks are definitely one of Venice's top icons. Visit the most famous shops and workshops to learn more about this ancient art. We suggest, for instance, Ca 'Macana, La Bauta and La Bottega dei Mascareri.
Murano Glass
The island of Murano is home to the ancient art of glass blowing. It is therefore the ideal place to purchase vases, chandeliers and glass jewelry. In this regard, you might want to consider our special Discover Venice Package, which includes a visit to a glass factory too.
Burano Lace
If you are more into fine tablecloths, centerpieces, linens and sheets, you should definitely add Burano lace to your Venice wishlist. Lace is an ancient art (it dates back approx. to the 16th century) that used to be in great demand all over Europe during the golden age of the Serenissima Republic.
