One of the things Venice is best known for, after its gondolas and canals, is enchanting handmade masks—and mask shops abound in the city. One standout is Gottardo Stefano, where you can find any type of mask you might want: from feminine doll-inspired masks to masculine bird masks like the one above. It makes a one-of-a-kind Venetian memento.
One of my favorite souvenirs I bought in Venice was my Venetian mask. They were breathtaking and made in traditional styles from papier-mâché or leather. Some sell for thousands of euros, and while mine isn't nearly as intricate as these are, it's a beautiful keepsake.
