We went to Fondaco die Tedeschi store with pre booked tickets for the roof terrace. The store is very impressive with designer shops galore. The views from the roof top terrace are excellent and well worth the visit

Recommended by our hotel. What a view of Venice from the rooftop terrace!! Well worth going in and up all 4 escalators. We visited early one morning so didn’t need to book. The atrium in the store is also fantastic.

Went originally to go on the terrace which offers great views of the grand canal and venice rooftops. Aside from the terrace this is a majestic department store with the building constructed in the 12th century. Visually stunning inside.
