Shopping in Venice

Shopping in Venice Venice is a city filled with traditions, art and beauty, but equally, like the rest of Northen Italy, fashion is part of its culture.

Shopping in Venice suits all tastes and budgets. Stores usually close on Sunday and Monday mornings. Opening time is from 9.30 in the morning until 1.30 PM and from 3.30 PM until 7 PM. Here are the main shopping areas, where you can stroll about and find the nicest shops in Venice.

  • Le Mercerie
    This area goes from St. Mark’s Square to the Rialto Bridge and is the main shopping area in Venice. Walking around Le Mercerie, you will find anything: little craftsmanship shops, boutique and any kind of store, from jewelry to shoes, from leather goods to glass art.

  • St. Mark’s Square “Portici”
    Here you can find greatest and shiniest jewelries of the city.
    From St. Mark’s Square to Ponte dell’Accadema A large area featuring the greatest luxury stores, such as Armani, Gucci, Prada, Versace and Valentino.

  • Campo Santo Stefano and Campo San Polo
    These two neighborhoods located across the Canal Grande are the perfect place to find simple souvenirs or more affordable shops.

  • Do shopping in VeniceCastello
    It’s the “sestiere” (the sestieri are the six quarters of Venice) of the craftsmanship. Here, for instance, is the traditional Carnival mask workshop of Castello.
    The Carnival masks are a typical product that can be found everywhere in Venice, in different kinds. Some are simple and cheaper, others are real masterpieces of artisan art and can be quite pricey.

  • Murano
    People come here to watch artisans blowing glass and to buy beautiful products made of the prestigious Murano glass. You can find them pretty much everywhere in Murano, but beware of imitations! Always check the origin: many Chinese products (“Made in PRC”) try to imitate Murano glass, but of course can’t compete in quality and authenticity.

  • Rialto Market
    It’s one of the shopping points for Venetians, a typical, often packed place where you can buy fresh seafood, fruit, vegetables, flowers and lots of other stuff. We recommend that you arrive quite early so you can find the freshest products and enjoy a not yet crowded atmosphere.

  • Burano
    Via Baldassarre Galuppi (the main street of the Burano island) is a perfect place to stop by and eat some good, fresh seafood out in the open. The typical product of Burano is sold throughout the whole island: needle-lace.

 

If you prefer to shop in the fashionable Venetian ateliers, you’ll have an overwhelming amount of choice, by walking around the streets of Mercerie.

Shops are usually open in the morning from 9am to 12:30 pm and then from 4pm to 7:30pm. Some shops may be closed on Wednesdays. Here we have put together a list of the addresses of shops selling typical Venetian products: masks, glass and needle-lace.
