Vecchio Murano: "Murano Glass and Carnaval Masks" Venice Shopping Tip by Profsmiley
Venice Shopping: 269 reviews and 380 photos
We've been to a couple of bigger stores - and you'd notice that quality of the craft they have is almost the same everywhere. Each store carry a number of really tacky, cheap items, many mediocre ones, and finally a good-sized selection of the best local craft.
This place had been the one that was the most reasonably priced - also offered the best discounts when we bargained.
What to buy: Murano glass items - vases, clocks, wine bottle caps, etc... There are also lots of rings, bracelets or pendants made out of lively colored glass.
If that's not your thing, you can choose from many of the carnival masks... Many different designs and sizes...
There was also a corner filled with porcelain dolls and Burano lacework...
What to pay: You can expect to spend from 5 to 600 euros(or more!).
Address: Calla Larga, San Marco.
Directions: Find the closest McDonalds (but never go in there!) to Piazza San Marco, take a right, walk straight ahead till you reach a small bridge and dead-end!
