A highly recommended stop off that isn't going to tear into your wallet and extract your euros. Unless you buy something of course. You go through a fairly nondescript doorway and the place just unfolds; rooms upon rooms all scented to the ceiling, a mixture of museum and high class parfumerie with a very chic little cafe and florist for...

This is a gem of a place situated in a back street behind Santa Maria Novella. The ceilings and chandeliers are just beautiful and the fragrances divine. Well worth a visit and (unless you buy some of their products!) it's FREE!

This was our second visit to this marvellous museum and working perfumery where you can pick up a huge range of natural, organic skincare products, deliciously scented perfumes, herbal tinctures and supplements. It's a little difficult to find at first - no huge signs outside advertising what it is - but inside it is like stepping back in time to... More

The perfumes are nice and the staff extremely helpful in trying to find the right scent. Spend some time reading about the history and strolling through the different rooms. We... More

My friends and I had read about this Farmacia and had planned to make a quick stop in (more of curiosity). It turned out that it is located very near the apartment we had rented. This 600 year old pharmacy is an interesting place - part museum and part shop, there are brief historical notes explaining what things are, products... More

Well worth visiting---a 600 year old "pharmacy"---with lots of skin care items and elixirs. Off the beaten track, but a step back in time.
