A unique optician in Venice. Boudoir has moved from Dorsoduro 3771 ( the living room like shop ) to Dorsoduro 2751 ( a new higly surprising layout). Every item is choosen or made by the owner who is an optometrist and eyeglasses expert, so you can buy special spectacles from a very selected collection of 500 pieces as well as perfumes, jewellery and other rarities. A selection of our eyewear is visibile and line in our online shop.

We absolutely loved this spot! Alessandro and his sweet dog Nelson were lovely and so helpful. We each found a couple great pairs of glasses while we were there and he had them ready so quickly. Would definitely recommend!
