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.

Great frames, excellent service, good after-sales. The first class shopping experience recalled many times when people comment: "I like your frames - where did you buy them?"
