I'm off to Venice early next year and wondered if anyone on here had been and could recommend any cool shops to go to??

Paul - If you go to Barena store, please do a little report.

Don't bother with the Doge's palace or St Marks, the Barena store is better.

We are on a fashion forum Nick not the lonely planet forum. I'm sure Paul will take in the sights and culture but mixed in would like to visit a few stores. I too would like to know more about the Barena store so if you go Paul take a few pics and report back.

I dont plan on just go shopping. I just thought someone on here might have been and could pass on any hidden gems that might be there.

Thought i'd revive this thread as I'm visiting venice early next year myself, does anyone know of any decent shops over there? Not holding much hope looking at the previous attempt

You cant buy fuck all in venice. Fuck all. If you had a thousand quid to spend for free, you couldnt spend it. It does not sell clothes. Just forget it and enjoy the most beautiful place in the world.
