Visited Francis Modal today to purchase my second bag from there. The bags are all handmade in Venice and lined with leather. Admitted, not your daily type of bag purchase but the quality is so superior.....far better than the high end designer bags for sale...More

They are so proud of their work and you know that everything they make is 100% real. They design their own bags and have real leather. Unfortunately, very few places can say they sell authentic goods.

No matter how many times I am in Venice this has been my first shopping stop since I discovered it 10 years ago. I have a bag for each year, and this year I bought 2. They only get more beautiful with age.

The handbags here are beautifully made from beautiful leather, and I bought one. My only caveat is the aggressive sell. Take your time.

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
