I reserved a time for the rooftop in advance. The views were good, but not that amazing. Had great weather and took some pics. Reserving in advance is the way to go. Looked at some of the shops, but didn't buy anything. If you're climbing...More

A beautiful luxury department store in a restored old building Next to Rialto Bridge with stunning view, we can find here the best high end designers. You can go to the roof for amazing view of Venice. Definitely 5 stars for quality and kindness

My boyfriend and I went in here with a recommendation from his cousin who had come prior to us. We got something way more impressive than what we thought. It was the best view on the top floor and the wait was worth it.

This place was re-developed to house designer brands. The prices are astronomical. I noticed a lot of people 'window shopping' but not so many buying.
