Ca' Macana

Nothing shouts ‘Venice’ more than a beautiful mask, and yet the ubiquitous tacky Asian fakes can easily turn one off. If authentic Venetian masks are what you’re after, go to Ca’ Macana. Their products are all made in town and range from the simplest to the most flamboyant of creations.

Casa del Parmigiano

Artisan cheeses and quality cured meats can be found at Casa del Parmigiano, a family-run deli nestled in a little square right by the Rialto Market. They have Parmesan in multiple stages of ageing, of course, as well as a plethora of cheeses from all over Italy, plus a small charcuterie counter featuring, among other delights, some fine prosciutto and culatello.

Venini

The art of hand-blown glass in Venice was born on the island of Murano, and that’s where the vast majority of the furnaces still operate. Venini stands out for having some of the most elegant fine-art creations, including vases and modern and traditional chandeliers. They are painfully expensive, but worth seeing all the same.

TFondaco dei Tedeschi

TFondaco dei Tedeschi by DFS opened its doors last year after a colossal refurbishment of the 11th-century building in which it’s hosted. The top-tier department store is the answer to the increasing demand for luxury products in Venice, but it offers more than just a shopping experience. The top floor serves as a creative space for shows and exhibits, making switching from purses to paintings ultimately seamless.
