The Civilized Shopper's Guide to Florence

The Civilized Shopper's Guide to Florence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eight walks take shoppers to unique shops that uphold Italian standards of quality, craftsmanship, and creativity.

With this discriminating book as a guide, visitors will find a trove of eighty shops that only native Florentines know well. In its pages youll find exquisite handmade lingerie, jewelry inspired by Renaissance paintings, handcrafted leather boxes, beautifully tailored shirts for men and women, vintage French and Italian designer clothing, shoes, hats, gourmet items, and much, much more. The walks include forty dining recommendations from where to get a quick caffe-ciok (“the best thing to ever happen to espresso, hot chocolate, and steamed milk”) to a sumptuous Tuscan meal. The book also serves as an informative guide to often perplexing opening days and hours, the always perplexing street numbering system, and shopping etiquette.
