Gilberto Penzo

The Venetian fleet is among the oldest in the world. Should you find yourself in love with the typical Venetian boats or gondolas, make your way to Gilberto Penzo, where you can buy an elaborate miniature to take home with you. And if you wish to build one by yourself, you can also buy a kit with full instructions included.


Walking through the labyrinth of streets in Venice, you'll come across many interesting shops that are certainly worth a visit. From traditional markets selling local specialities like prosciutto and a variety of Italian cheeses to shops selling Venetian treasures like a gondolier's hats and colourful glass items made on the island of Murano. If you're after high fashion shops, they're located at Via XXII Marzo and neighbouring streets. Via XXII Marzo stretches from St Mark's Square towards Academia, and it's one of the main streets for luxury shopping in Venice, where you'll find renowned brands like Prada, Valentino, Etro, Chanel, and Gucci. There's also a designer outlet located about 40km from Venice.
