Florence is best known for its Renaissance architecture and masterpieces. This creates a splendid backdrop for exploring the retail treasures of this Italian city. Here are some of the places to visit to experience the best shopping in Florence:
The first Gucci shop in the city of Florence was opened in 1921. Almost a century later, the brand remains a dominant name in the fashion scene. These days, Gucci has two boutiques in Florence (on Via de’ Tornabuoni and Via Roma), along with a museum and a restaurant.
In Piazza del Mercato Nuovo, one can find a 16th century gallery that houses various stalls offering all sorts of knick-knacks
and leather goods. The market is popularly called Mercato del Porcellino due to
the wild boar statue found on one of its ends.
Known to be one of the oldest worldwide, the Santa Maria di Novella Pharmacy was founded in the early 13th century. Over the centuries, it has included fragrances and beauty products into its line of organic offerings.
In Florence, the Ginori name is synonymous with porcelain. The
Richard Ginori shop on Via dei
Rondinelli is a must-visit if you are looking for beautiful chinaware.
When it comes to shopping streets, Via dei Calzaiuoli is a
favorite among the locals because of its accessibility and the range of shops along
it. Here, you’ll find stores offering clothing, fashion accessories, souvenirs,
electronics and more.
