    Depends on the format I guess.. It´s been 20+ years but here´s where I used to get my stuff: http://www.pk-digital.it/chisiamo_en.asp
    It´s on the mainland, not far from Venice.

    They might not have film, but they will tell you where you can get some!

    I was over in Venice earlier in the year - There is a small shop just off San Marco square that held some stock of film, but I didn't look too closely as he didn't have any 120 in stock at the time. Was expecting a delivery a day or so after I was due to fly home.

    My advice, take as much film as you can carry and don't count on rely on getting any in Venice.

    Yes, if it's the shop I'm thinking of they also have some very interesting second-hand cameras as well, some rarities and prices were OK as well.They had 120 and 35mm when I was there.

    I've had some interesting conversations with loacls when they sawmy TLR, on e woman telling her young (maybe 5 & 7) sons look there's a real camera

    Fotomatica is one of the largest BW material supplier in Italy/Southern Europe ( http://www.fotomatica.it ).
    Problem is they are not in Venice but if you have a car and a GPS it's a matter of 20 minutes, might be worthwhile considering it instead of paying high prices in not specialized shops.
    Have a nice trip!

    Bring twice or thrice the quantity you think you'll need and you'll save money compared to buying anything in Venice city centre during peak season, I say
