Best Little Gift Shop(s) in Tremezzo

   There is never enough shopping  when I am in Italy.    So having been to Tremezzo before, I realized that most of my shopping had to be done in Bellagio.  While staying at the best hotel in Tremezzo, Grand Hotel Tremezzo, I strolled down the main hallway of the hotel and enjoyed window shopping in the display cases, several of them by the way.    I asked the manager about a particular item and she told me how and where to purchase it.  The one morning we had to get to the Tremezzo ferry stop I spotted this unique store from across the street.        What a gem it is!         Fleur de Lis   is a unique little store.    It is located on Via Portici Sampietro 4. If you need to shop for those last minute gifts you will definitely find it here.    It is stuffed with the finest gifts.    This store is owned and operated by two sisters:    Sabrina and Silvia Morganti. Sabrina is the local artist and many of her items are for sale in this gift shop.    You can purchase handbags made of silk, silk ties and scarves and maybe you will find some designed and painted by Sebrina, Murano glass jewelry,    venetian masks and so much more.      Go and see for yourself!    You will not be disappointed. My group of ladies picked this place clean.
