"Shoe Sculpture" Venice Local Custom Tip by nicolettart

Venice Local Customs: 336 reviews and 615 photos


When you're in Venice it really does help to get lost because you will come across the most delightful things! There was a shoemaker, of course not your ordinary shoemaker, in a neighborhood I cannot remember. But the window had leather slippers shaped like gondolas, 8-inch high platforms, and bare feet made of red leather which were shoes!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
