The narrow streets of Venice are lined with beautifully arranged windows that cannot fail to tempt shoppers. The city has the additional bonus of being completely pedestrianized.
Few cities of similar size have such a wide variety of goods to browse through as you explore the fascinating and diverse neighbourhoods. There is still a strong artisan tradition in Venice, and alongside glass and lace you will find high-quality fashion and leather goods, antiques and jewelry. Beware, though, of foreign imitations!
