Shopping in Venice
Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

In fact, Venetian prices for clothes, bags and other things are much lower than in Russia. As for the small number of stores, then one can argue with that. In every district of the city, there are many shops, boutiques overflowing with exquisite glassware, fine lace, luxurious paper, leather goods and clothing - the goods that once made Venice world famous..
