I am following this shop for quite a long time through Facebook. My first visit exceed my expectations: once you get there you feel that you are in an 100% artisanal business, all products are being made by hand and I can say their leather...More
I was about to leave Florence without buying a leather bag. I had been all over and either couldn't find one I liked or thought they were overpriced. Then I found this lovely little shop and entered heaven. The items on sale are unique and...More

Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
