Favorite Venice Italy Shopping Spots

Next to all the kitsch and tourist goods, there are also quality products and souvenirs available in Venice. 

One of everybody's favorite is the Venice Rialto Market 

You can find the best stores with local food and products if you search into hidden alleys. Far away from the tourists, you might discover shops with unique local souvenirs.

These are my favorite shops in Venice, Italy:

1. Name: Mondo Novo: Venice's most original paper mache masks. A monstrous bear's head Might hang alongside a gloating Tutankhamun, but their specialty is the Venetian Carnival Costumes. Address: Rio Terra Canal, Dorsoduro 3063. Their webshop is www.MaskedArt.com

2. Name: Jesurum: A shop with triumphant exquisite lace and embroidery. Founded in 1870. The firm acted as a first trade school for poor girls. Address: Piazza S Marco 60-1, Marco S.

3. Name: Venice Pavilion Bookshop: Excellent selection of multilingual literature and miscellany focusing on Venice. Also reserves as a tourist information point and box office for cultural events. They use it even during the Venice Biennale. Address: Palazzetto Selva, Giardinetti Reali, S. Marco 2.

However, more interesting are the traditional local products, lace, hand-printed fabrics, old glass beads, handmade marbled paper, and other kinds of Venetian crafts. Of course, those who are looking for a classic gift, you should buy a carnival mask or a vase or bowl of Murano glass. The world-famous glassworks of Murano!

But how about local Veneto wine? You can read it on my new blog page. They say the best-tasting wine is made in Valpolicella, near Verona and east of Lake Garda. It is the most famous wine from the Veneto. 

The hills lie against the marble quarries, and you have many (small) wine companies and good wine production. Read all about the wines from the Veneto.

In other shopping streets, you will find quality clothes at a bargain. Go to the streets of:

  • The Lista Di Spagna;
  • The Strade Nova; 
  • From the train station to Rialto;
  • In the main pedestrian street between the Rialto Bridge and Campo San Polo 

And since Venice Italy shopping is also reflected in the culinary souvenirs, these must not be forgotten. Cheese, ham, wine, vinegar, and olive oil.

Don't get disappointed and prepare with my schedule of the...
