Shops in Venice: where to buy souvenirs and delicacies

Previously, BlogoItaliano already talked about the most remarkable shopping centers, outlets and markets of Venice and its environs for those who can not imagine their trip without shopping. In this article we continue the theme of shopping in Venice, but this time we will pay more attention to the points where it makes sense to look at souvenirs and local delicacies.

What to bring with you from Venice? Of course, a carnival mask, Murano glass and the finest lace are what the region is famous for. In addition to things in a suitcase, it is worth leaving a place for edible souvenirs - ham, cheese, wine - all that without which Italy is simply unthinkable.

In the center of Venice, shops selling all of the above are found at every step. Selecting the most colorful is a matter of taste. But we still tried.
