Florentine Experience Shopping
This is our 360° Italian shopping walk and a full immersion Florentine experience!
Let's get into some creative fashion shops, workshops with unusual brand names, designer ateliers where we can experience the excitement and happiness of being able to bring back home a precious jewel or a dress by an emerging designer, a vintage item, or a pair of hand-made shoes as well as a bottle of perfume to remind us of an unforgettable experience in Florence. We will visit an artisan who creates precious objects for the home, a Bookbinder who decorates book covers with the famous Florentine marbled paper created rigorously by hand in beautiful colour combinations.
We will explore a unique workshop “museum” where beautiful landscapes are created with mosaics and semi-precious stones and visit the authentic ceramic workshop famous for its pottery entirely hand painted in traditional Tuscan style. In the fascinating setting of the Franciscan dormitory of a 15th century church we can observe a leather craftsman creating elegant gold embossed leather ware. In fact there is no lack of leather shops in Florence where you can buy a trendy leather jacket, or a handbag of elegant or casual design all made with the highest quality craftsmanship. We will also visit shops of household items where you can find beautiful Tuscan linen fabrics and accessories for your bathroom or kitchen.
In other words, let’s have a different and unique experience of Florence, one that you will always remember…so you will want to come back again!
