Florence: A Shopping Destination

High Fashion & Quality Handcrafts

The historical center of Florence is a mix of great art, monumental attractions and tempting shops filled with the flavors, perfumes and colors, not just of the city but, of Tuscany in general. Sometimes it is wise to come prepared, know the top products and where to shop for the best gift ideas, and sometimes you can find the perfect surprise as you stroll one of the many side roads, window shopping for colorful stationery, traditional ceramics or even the latest in fashion at one of the many flagship stores such as Ferragamo, Conte of Florence and Gucci. There are also the fun shops like that of the Disney Store … or the local markets where everyone can particapate tasting their way through Florentine wines, cheeses and focaccia breads.

Florence has a vast heritage of craftsmen and when it comes to shopping, they offer a tantalizing variety of goods to choose from. Some of the favorites include leather jackets, bags, shoes, belts and gloves, stunning marble mosaics, beautiful necklaces, earrings & charms and cutting edge fashion clothing for men, women and children.

And it doesn’t stop here, your options include brilliant designs on paper, fragrant combinations of flowers, spices and fruit at the historic pharmacies or even the numerous galleries or art and antiques featuring the spectacular artistic skills which Florence seems to inspire.

Shopping in Florence is inevitable, like eating gelato and gazing with wonder at Davide at the Accademia. And when you are finished with browsing the Florentine and Tuscan specialities downtown then you can head over to the outlets where you will find a different selection of quality products at all time low prices.

In this section we hope to offer our suggestions and tips for getting the most from your shopping experience in Florence.
