Shopping and Gelato!

Speak of Italy and the first word that comes to mind is FASHION!
Along the streets of Venice, you are also bound to come across gaily dressed Italians and why not, when they have so many fashion brand retailers originating from this land that you can see them all over the streets.
You name it, you have it

Despite the size of Venice, this little place definitely did not lose out in terms of fashion and shops for shopaholics!

Back to San Marco's area, these are all the higher end shoppers' paradise
