All the shopaholics should consider putting this place high on their to-visit list. It is one of the favourite shopping areas in the city. It has a very long history, dating back to the times of the Republic of Venice. Come and see for yourself - even if you should just window-shop it is definitely worth it for experiencing the atmosphere.
