The address on this listing is for a smaller outlet along the river, not the main shop. It was still a nice place to visit and pick up some beautiful souvenirs. One step in, and very little room for a wheelchair user to maneuver.

Just found the rolls of paper that I bought last summer... they are beautiful and I cannot wait to frame them. The shop workers are always kind and allowed shoppers to do their own thing, but also answered questions well.

Wish we had more time to visit. Would love to explore if they offer book rebinding. Their paperwork would look beautiful in some find leather bound editions. We definitely will explore their offerings online.

Beware of trying to visit according to the location on TripAdvisor. There is an Il Papiro there, but it’s not the store that the photos & reviews that generally accompany this on TripAdvisor are of. We visited the store on the bank of the Arno,...More
