Beautiful high quality Italian leather bags made by hand in Venice. Worth the price!Unique and classic designs. A must see store when visiting Venice! Quality and craftsmanship is evident in their products. Excellent service.

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 neighbourhood.
