I found this shop online before we arrived in Venice. It was on my list of "must visit" stores. I was not disappointed. My husband and I were impressed by the quality of all of the leather goods. The deigns and colors were really special....More
I would recommend anybody to buy a bag at this shop. I bought mine in November 2006 and have used it most days since and it still looks like new and up to date, as it is a classic style. Fantastic quality.
I really wanted an Italian leather purse made by a real Italian, not the knockoffs I kept seeing all around Venice. I'm not kidding, stamped "MADE IN VENICE". In English. Sure.
I reached out on TA's blog space and within a couple of hours I...More

Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
