"Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live." Gianni Versace
Coming from different cities and countries of the world, visitors are often favourably impressed by the elegance and taste of the Italians: but where do we shop?
Do we really spend thousands of euros on designer clothes and leather shoes?
Find out for yourself and join us on this shopping tour: discover the best Venetian and Italian boutiques in the very heart of Venice!
We’ll take you on a stroll through the maze of narrow Venetian alleyways to show you Made in Italy and Made in Venice! Enjoy a guided tour that will teach you how to shop in Venice like a local. Foodies will thrill to the most truly authentic traditional food and the largest wine shop with more than 900 labels, while those interested in non-gustatory delights will set out on a hunt for design objects, antique books or iconic dresses: Tell us what you’re looking for; we’ll help you find it!
This tour will be tailored: your guide will design an itinerary around your individual tastes, preferences and personality. From a tiny goldsmith’s workshop casting traditional Venetian jewels like the mori to designers who take more contemporary approaches to jewellery – we’ll make sure you find artisans who are a perfect fit for you. Check out cashmere sweaters and silk scarves by Fortuny, or discover a small hidden boutique selling lamps and mirrors.
From stylish dress shops to hat– your expert shopping consultant will reveal to you all the Venetians’ favourite places to shop and window-shop. Perhaps you would like to shake your senses with traditional Venetian perfumes (maybe even learning to make a unique one for yourself!), or try some chocolates that you might want to take home to your friends to eat as you wear your velvet handmade Venetian Gondolier shoes!
This custom tour is designed with a lot of fun in mind! Save time and find what you’re looking for: soak up superlative-quality design and the city’s heady creative mélange of modernity and tradition. Just bring your shopping list and leave some room in your bags for your finds: we’ll take care of the rest!
