This beautiful building built in 1228 hosts DFS T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, a luxury shopping center full of all the duty-free goods you can desire. This building was once space to German merchants for trading, you can see this when you walk into the courtyard style architecture.

DFS T Fondaco dei Tedeschi is at the foot of the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice. Transformed by Rem Koolhaas and OMA in 2009, it is now a lifestyle contemporary urban department store managed by the DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer. It is a carefully curated shopping experience with authentic Venetian treasures on the ground floor and many luxury international brands hand selected by DFS including Italian labels like Gucci, Bvlgari, Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Max Mara, Moncler, Zegna, Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Valentino. Other brands offered include Tiffany and Co., Cartier, Burberry, Rimowa, YSL, Celine and many more. There is some ready-to-wear but DFS mainly carries accessories, jewelry, watches, and beauty care. This could be the Harrods of Italy!

What else does one do besides just SHOP while in Venice? EAT. Inside the magnificent T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the legendary Phillipe Starck designed Café Amo where you can find gorgeous pastries and Amo Restaurant where you can get a taste of three Michelin star chef Massimiliano Alajmo in the main dining space of the ground floor.

    跟国内的购物中心相比多了一份地中海的气息,跟朋友逛了半天都不知道该买什么好。虽然语言不太好,不过幸运的是好多说中文的员工,所以一点儿障碍都没有,还有GENIUS CARD 会员还有贵宾休息室可以用,真是不错~遗憾的是没有我最想要买的那一款鞋子~~~~伤心~~
