Shopping

 
 
Florence is truly a shoppers haven. The brand conscious will have the time of their lives along Via de' Tornabuoni, which extends up to Via della Vigna Nuova. Here you will find the big designers: Gucci, Armani, Ferragamo, and Mila Schön. Meanwhile, the haggling shopper will go mad over at San Lorenzo street market, where antiques and other knick knacks can be found.

The best things to buy in Florence include almost everything! From fine leather to marbleised paper, high fashion, shoes, hand-embroidered linen, lingerie, Tuscan wines, lace, gold jewellery, even Renaissance pieces and antiques — there are a massive amount of products you can bring home from this beautiful city.

Fine art and antiques can best be found on the Oltrarno, the home of artisans. Shops on Via Maggio and the Borgo Ognissanti are teeming with treasures waiting to be uncovered. For serious collectors, a visit to the Gianfranco Luzzetti showroom on Borgo San Jacopo is highly recommended.

Ceramics and things for the home can be found on Viceversa on Via dello Stell 3, while books can be had in Feltrinelli International on Via Cavour.

For those who are looking for high fashion with bargain prices, it is a must to visit Guardaroba or the stock house of Grandi Firme. While these stores carry last season's fashion, you are sure to find one or two to suit your tastes. Jewellery can be found on the Ponte Vecchio, where the goldsmiths and silversmiths of old used to create their wares.

For fine stationery and paper products, pay a visit to Giulio Giannini and Figlio on Piazza Pitti. Meanwhile, the best of Tuscan wine and liquor is best found in the front room of the Enoteca Alessi, located on Via dell'Oche and the Enoteca Gambi Romano on Borgo SS. Apostoli.
