Venezia Shopping

Bellini, a cocktail in which white peach paste is mixed with Italian champagne Prosecco and served in frozen chilled glasses, is a Venetian drink and an option you should not neglect when thinking about what to buy in Venice.

The creator of this delicious cocktail is actually the owner of the famous Harry’s Bar, Giuseppe Cipriani. Bellini, the specialty of Harry’s Bar, which world-famous stars and artists have visited for 100 years when they visit Venice, actually did not have a name at first.

heavy news

When the Venetian painter Bellini held an exhibition in this bar in 1948, Cipriani named the cocktail after the famous artist, and since then Bellini has become not only a cocktail sold at the bar, but also an exported product. Today, Harry’s Bar means Bellini, and Bellini is Harry’s Bar.

If you are looking for an original and unusual gift or souvenir, I recommend you to buy a bottle of Bellini from Venice. If you do not want to buy this product from Harry’s Bar, you have other options. The drink, which costs around 10 Euros a bottle, is now sold in almost every shop around the Rialto Bridge.
While wandering the streets of Venice, large doorknobs made of animal figures will attract your attention. Even if it doesn’t, I suggest you pay attention.


Each one is like a separate work of art. Doorknobs, which usually consist of lion figures, also have a very special position in the city, which makes these products unique gifts or souvenirs.

Doorknobs made of metal, which are mostly heavy to make a solid sound, are both a souvenir that you will love to use for yourself and a different gift option for your loved ones with their different figures and varieties. I must say that these products are a little expensive shopping object.

Even the cheapest doorknobs start at 60-70 euros. But if you’re looking for an original product, it’s worth it. Fonderia Artistica Valese, the store of the organization founded by Venetian artists, is one of the most ideal places to avoid imitations made in China.

Do you know that Italy is number 1 in the world when it comes to shoes and bags?

Genuine leather, shoes designed with an Italian aesthetic understanding and produced with a flawless technique are among the highest quality options you can find in Venice, as in almost every city in the country. Moreover, handmade models are much more distinguished.


When you buy and wear such a product, you can be sure that it will be noticed. You should only allocate a minimum budget of 500 Euros. If you are looking for a product that can be considered not only shoes but also a work of art, Giovanna Zanella is the right address.

(Address: Calle Carminati, San Lio 5641, Venice. Open: 9:30 – 13:00 and 15:00 – 19:00 every day except Sunday)
I agree that the products I mentioned in the What to Buy in Venice article are a bit expensive. That’s why, in the last article, I would like to talk about products that are more affordable but still remind you of Venice every time you look at them or you can buy plenty of them for your loved ones.


In this respect, of course, fridge magnets are among the products you can find in Venice, as in almost every city. Apart from that, miniature gondolas, Murano glass earrings, accessories such as necklaces, handmade Venetian papers and bookmarks are among the Venetian options, regardless of where they are produced.
