Great frames, excellent service, good after-sales. The first class shopping experience recalled many times when people comment: "I like your frames - where did you buy them?"

While vacationing in Italy, I noticed how everyone had the most fashionable eyewear. I am someone who has to wear glasses all the time, and I definitely had eyewear envy. This shop has the most gorgeous, unique eyewear at every price range. The owner is incredibly attentive and helped both my husband and I pick out amazing frames. I bought... More

even if you don't think you "need" a pair of glasses. I bought two pairs - just couldn't resist! Not only is the selection huge - glasses you won't see anywhere else - but Alessandro is an artist. He has an eye for the glasses that best suit your face and lifestyle. He takes time to listen and help you... More

Unpressured, I like that word. A saleperson should always remember how it feel when we are on the other side... I rather makes some sales less, but leave the impression of what I really am. Kind of respect for the guests. Thank you for choosing Boudoir. Alessandro More

Alessandro helped me find a great pair of sunglasses while visiting Venice. You will note while there, many people are wearing very fashionable sunglass designs and you can find many of those options at Alessandro’s shop. The location is easy (for Venice anyway!) to find right off of the Campo San Barnaba in Dorsoduro. I went in by myself for... More

I've been advised by a friend back in Roma to go and have a look at the Amazing ALessandro's store and that turned to be one of the best stops I made in Venice, Boudoir is so beautiful and absolutely different from any optic store you could have visited. Alessandro really loves his store and his job and he will... More

After seeing fabulous colorful glasses in their window (store was closed) we made it a point to find them again.

Thank you for the nice words and also you made the point that it's not easy for a foreigner to find the right way in our city. I should inform people that it's really easy to find the shop by google maps. One just needs to write BOUDOIR, then a gentle voice from the smartphone guides you here. The difference... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
