The lu­xu­ry heart of Ve­ni­ce

Where Venice - - Where Now | Shopping -

Ju­st steps from the Rialto Brid­ge, lu­xu­ry de­part­ment sto­re T Fon­da­co dei Te­de­schi of­fers the be­st of shop­ping, food and au­then­tic Ve­ne­tian craf­tsman­ship. All un­der one roof. Span­ning 7,000 squa­re me­ters, the ve­ry fir­st DFS re­tail spa­ce in Eu­ro­pe fea­tu­res an ex­cep­tio­nal ar­ray of Italian and in­ter­na­tio­nal fa­shion brands, accessories, jewel­ry and wat­ches, wi­nes and spi­ri­ts, fra­gran­ces and beau­ty pro­duc­ts. An au­then­tic shop­ping ex­pe­rien­ce in an em­ble­ma­tic hi­sto­ric buil­ding. Built in 1228, for al­mo­st 800 years it was a hub of cul­tu­re and tra­de. This la­vi­sh four-sto­rey de­part­ment sto­re is used as a spa­ce for even­ts, ex­hi­bi­tions and cul­tu­ral ini­tia­ti­ves but al­so as a ve­nue de­si­gned to pro­mo­te au­then­tic Ve­ne­tian craf­tsman­ship.

The ground floor atrium is ho­me to AMO, the ex­clu­si­ve Ve­ne­tian ca­fé/re­stau­rant run by the Ala­j­mo bro­thers of­fe­ring a ga­stro­no­mic ex­pe­rien­ce em­bo­dy­ing the real soul of Ve­ni­ce (www.ala­j­mo.it/amo).

And, to top it all, this stun­ning hi­sto­ric buil­ding over­loo­king the Grand Ca­nal is al­so a gem of ar­chi­tec­tu­re whi­ch, per se, is wor­th a vi­sit: the view from the roof­top ter­ra­ce is brea­th­ta­king!
