"Rules for Headache-Free Shopping" Venice Local Custom Tip by Krystynn

Venice Local Customs: 336 reviews and 615 photos

  Salvatore Ferragamo - My favorite designer
by Krystynn

Besides its uniqueness, Venice is also a fabulous place for SHOPPING! There are many great shoe stores, wonderful Venetian glass from Murano, hand embroidered table linens from Burano for you to buy.

Lugging your new bags of clothing and other buys through the streets on your way to Marco Polo Airport is no laughing matter either. :-(

EVERYBODY has to lug their own stuff. There is no other way to get to the airport transportation but to haul your bags over several bridges to a (water) taxi stop or a bus stop.

Boyfriends and husbands DEFINITELY come in very handy at such critical moments.... :-)
