Shoppers' Heaven

The Merceria, which runs through the touristy San Marco sestiere, is the primary thoroughfare of the area and also the main shopping street. It boasts all the designer brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Prada, along with other high end boutiques selling glass, leathers, and carnival masks. It’s a fashionista’s dream regardless of how outrageously expensive most of the stores are, with beautifully decorated shop windows and the magical background of Venice’s ancient buildings and cobblestone. Stop in some of the “negozi” which suit your fancy, or have a look from the outside and enjoy the walk from the Rialto Bridge to Piazza San Marco.
