Venice just like in any major Italian city, there are plenty of designer stores to choose from, and there is an abundance of tourist shops selling jewellery, Murano glass trinkets, carnival masks and other local gifts.
From Piazza San Marco, the Mercerie and Calle dei Fabbri are the main shopping streets, and the wide Calle Larga XXII Marzo is the best area to find expensive boutiques, like Versace, MaxMara, Gucci, Armani, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
If you are looking for gifts and souvenirs, go around Campo Santo Stefano and Calle della Mandola. These areas have also local boutiques with excellent quality clothes, shoes, wallets and handbags.
For fashion explore Calle Vallaresso, Calle Larga XXII marzo and Campo San Luca and for glass shops check the narrow streets near the Accademia gallery.
If you want to experience the authentic Venetian market, then head to the Rialto Bridge and check the local fish market. It is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 08:00 – 12:00 hours.
