Lonely Planet review

The plush, handwoven silk and wool wraps piled high on Arras’ shelves represent the combined efforts of this weaving cooperative, which offers vocational workshops for people with disabilities. Shimmering scarlet shawls deserve at least one summer sunset gondola ride, and cleverly draped wool jackets reduce Venice's winter chill factor even better than prosecco .
