Venice Lido Market Shopping Tour by OG Venice Italy.
The weekly market on the Venice Lido is famously known as "the market with the best views in the world". Indeed, you will enjoy sweeping views of the Canale di San Marco, the skyline of Venice and the Islands of the lagoon during this excursion. However, this bustling market is also the very best place - with the very best prices - to shop for local, regional and Italian foods in Venice. Between more than a kilometer of market stalls, there are produce from the islands of the lagoon, Italian cheeses, cured meats, candies, preserves and hundreds of other delicacies to discover. There are also antique furnishings, home goods, plants, flowers and just about anything else you could need or imagine.
On this 3 hour excursion, your host will travel with you from central Venice to Lido - 10 minutes by boat - walk with you to and through the market and assemble a generous tasting of specialties from various stalls. If needed, you will also have all the help you want with shopping from the stalls in Italian.
