    This is a much less touristy market, with far more vegetable and flea market elements. I enjoyed it and it had very tasty lunch options.

    Jacopo and Bruno are really masters in Pietra Dura Mosaics, the best masters. Each one of their works is a masterpiece, unique, precious and perfect. If you forgot to buy a mosaic in the "bottega" in Florence it is not too late: buy your precious Italian artworks at commessofiorentino dotcom

    Most beautiful art I have ever seen and Frederik (the artist) is incredibly friendly. In my opinion his paintings should be in the Uffizi!

    Very possibly the best vintage shop in town if you whether you are looking for curiosities and memorabilia or you are in the market for some serious furniture shopping. Small, friendly and easy to find. Great selection with items from 30's deco to 80's design and an uncanny attraction for prints and totalitarian memorabilia. Must go!

    We love to visit Enoteca Pontevecchio anytime we're in Florence! Fun to taste their wines and we appreciate their guidance and always send at least a few cases of wine home to Colorado.

    Also, my clients enjoy receiving wines from Tony and Laura's shop as Holiday gifts. These are unique wineries and I love to say "these are my favorite wines from Tuscany, etc..." so my clients feel special.

    Maren, it the best! I been to Florence 4 times and found Maren on Trip Advisor. I read her reviews and emailed her immediately! I have now been with Maren in Florence on 3 occasion and just returned from another wonder trip to Florence. My friends and I love Maren because she is very down to earth and finds us every special item at a much better price from shoes to leather coats and jewelry! I keep in touch with Maren and let her know every time I return to Florence. She is a terrific person and we have created a wonderful friendship! I highly recommend Maren if you are going to Florence!!

    I had read about The Gold Market on Trip Advisor and wanted to visit there on a recent trip to Florence. Imagine my surprise when the tour we were on included a visit to the shop. Maria explained to us about the jewelry and showed us several beautiful pieces. She was so nice and was not pushy, simply informative on how the jewelry is created. Afterward, while shopping our sales person, Sarah, was also very helpful by showing us several pieces. I never felt pressure to buy, it was always a very friendly and kind encounter. I would recommend this shop to anyone, even if you are not interested in buying, it is a friendly and fun place to visit.

    Amazing store to stop at for one of a kind perfumes, soaps , and house scents. We stop by just to see the store and ended up walking away with a variety of gifts for ourselves and others. The lady who assisted us had only been in her position for a few days and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the various scents and products .

    My wife and I happened upon this lovely little ceramic shop while in Florence. Ambria was so sweet and friendly. She took the time to explain each piece. Everything there is handmade and hand painted by Ambria and her father. We finally settled on a large serving tray. Luckily, they ship internationally as the tray was way too big to pack in our luggage. After spending some time in Venice, Paris and London, we returned home and the tray was there waiting for us. It's now proudly displayed on our coffee table in our living room to remind us of our trip to Italy.

    If you're looking for a piece of authentic Italian art as a souvenir, I highly recommend Le Mie Ceramiche.

    My wife and I recently discovered Laura's adorable and cozy shop when we were traversing the east side of Florence, connecting a few cathedrals on a walking route. I love Florence's craftsman traditions and feel it's a little spoiled by the retail scene and trinket culture around the Duomo and other top attractions. Laura's products are handmade, starting with the fascinating wooden looms that she weaves her fabrics with.

    Laura was so kind and fun and engaging to speak with. She invited us to see the weaving in action (our bag's fabric has Japanese paper woven into it!). She asked us all about where we're from and was enthusiastic about travel and seeing new places.

    When we finally selected a bag that we thought my sister would love, it was almost perfect.... I knew my sister would love the bag's flat bottom, attractive color blend and unique texture. It had two short woven handles, but I also know she loves shoulder bags. When we voiced this to Laura, she gladly suggested applying a new leather strap to serve for over-the-shoulder mode. We went around the corner (to an amazing, more local-centered public market) for lunch and picked up the modified, perfected bag less than 2 hours later. She charged nothing for the change.

    We loved the shop, found Laura to be a shining, brilliant and kind person and....we loved the soundtracks she had rolling in the shop and how she'd spontaneously sing along.

    With pride for supporting a Florentine artisan,
    Zak

    I purchased a perfume experience for my sister and I as a workshop for her hen party and I have to say, the workshop exceeded all our expectations and has made us both want to carry on with creating our own oils and fragrances. Letizia is absolutely fantastic and knows her stuff and is so lovely and approachable! Her studio is so beautiful and we had an amazing time learning about scents and she also provided us with wonderful Tuscan treats. Chianti, tea, coffee, Tuscan cake and amazing bread and meats! I wish we could come back and do it all over again! If you're looking for a workshop other than pizza making or wine tasting and want to get to discover the healing abilities of fragrances in lovely artistic surroundings, then I would highly recommend Aromantique!! Thanks so much :)

    Prior to my traveling to Florence, I researched on line where to buy Murano Glass in the Santa Croce neighborhood of Florence where we would be staying. I came upon La Bottega dei Cristalli's website which was very informative. I was equally impressed with Andrea's shop in person. The prices were reasonable, the inventory of items was lovely and high-end, and Andrea was so nice without being pushy. I was able to purchase larger items like a vase and plate as well as smaller items like a bracelet and tiny glass animals. Andrea wrapped everything extremely well. He suggested we ship our items home via Mail Boxes Etc. which was also close to where we were staying. We did not want to risk having our purchases broken in either our carry-on bag or our checked luggage, so we took his suggestion. Andrea wrapped everything so carefully in layers and layers of wrap. I highly recommend this shop if you are interested in Murano Glass.
