Pegna is full of delightful sweets, delicious deli, perfumes, and everyday items too. It is a lovely shop close to the duomo. You will find many items that can be unique souvenirs.

Loved staying in an AirBnB in Florence so we did not have to eat out every meal - but still not psyched to actually cook. Pegna was a great solution - recommended at the wonderful Paperback Exchange down the block. We got some salad items...More

This is an interesting store. At first glance, I thought it was a pharmacy. Inside there is a bit of everything - wine, food, baby products, deli, it is hard to pigeon hole. It is a nicely displayed shop but the prices are a bit...More

This food shop doesn't look much from the outside, but once inside the place opens up to a treasure trove of Italian ingredients. We bought olive oils, balsamic vinagars & some different kinds of dried pasta to take home. I wish I was self catering...More

Does not look like a food/wine store from the outside but they carry vast quantities of excellent sausages, cheeses, crackers, wine etc., everything you'd need for a fantastic picnic or dinner.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

I'd like to pick up a couple small packets of spice blends in Florence. Any favorites? (Italian label please) Mercado Centrale and Pegna are on my must do list.

Hi all, continuing with my trip report now back from home... Tuesday 8th of May Tuesday was Palazzo Vecchio day. I had booked 10 am slot for the "Secret Passages" guided tour. :) A little mishap happened first thing in the morning: halfway through walking there I thought I'm packing peculiarly light that day and realised I don't have my camera. 😀 Oops. No worries, we were early so the hubby went back to the hotel to get it and I went ahead to pick up the tickets. Another good...More

Your Trip Reports are testaments to the beauty and history of Florence. Looking forward to reading about your Chianti trip. Have you started making plans for your return?

Hi all, I’m researching for some nice food shops in Florence. I really liked the Volpetti shop in Rome, perhaps something similar? Looking for example great dried pastas, balsamic vinegar, chocolate, cantuccini, perhaps some prosciutto for hubby, local coffee blends… So far I’ve got two, Eataly shop and Pegna. If anyone has any recommendations it’d be much appreciated. :)

You might try searching online for specialty food shop yelp firenze (no quotes). Using a similar search, but substituting "roma" for "firenze" brings up Volpetti as #2.
