Most of the tourist shops in Venice just sell the glass art and jewelry. However, this man actually makes it in front of your nose! He can actually customize it to your needs. We came by this little shop when walking the Free Walking Tour,...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
