I read about Michelangelo´s shop while preparing my trip to Florence, and reading the reviews I already decided that it was a must do. The shop is on the first street to the left after the entrance of the municipal market (the name of the street is not shown on the tourist maps), very easy to find. Michelangelo is the sympathy in person, and visiting his shop is quite an experience. He speaks fluent English, and have a contagious passion for what he does. He will explain everything you want to know about the product, and even teach you how to not fall on the tourist traps for leather. He is not pushy and makes you feel comfortable, and if you want to try all the jackets, he will happily help you. His products are very unique, very different from the ones in the streets. The quality of the products is visible, even if you know nothing about leather, and he leads you to enjoy the product first and think about the price after, and not decide if you are going to enjoy the product based on the price. So don´t lose time wandering around the little shops in the street, go straight there and be really satisfied! In the end I bought a handbag, and Michelangelo kindly offered to post me other products that I like any time.
