Antiques Market at Campo San Maurizio
Your ear is drawn to talk of ancient Murano glass vases, delicate china figurines and polished silverware dating back centuries. You head towards the sound and come to the delightful little Campo San Maurizio. A quiet square that is less touristy than most and home to the Antiques Market. To stroll around such a market invokes feelings of history and you can almost know the people who used these items daily. A child’s beloved doll, the “best” tea set of a Venetian gentle woman or the bone handled walking cane of an old noble man conjure up images of everyday life in Venice long since gone.
