    I ordered a case of various wines and had them shipped home. Laura was VERY helpful. The wine is great and not expensive.

    Don’t settle for cheaper, poorer quality jackets from other street market stalls. Visit Jimmy’s leather shop if you want beautifully designed leather jackets with amazing quality. Go and see Mario the designer of the jackets, for great customer service, knowledge and advice! I came 2 years ago and bought a black leather jacket which I absolutely love and receive so many positive compliments about. So when we came to Florence this time, I brought both my husband and mother and we purchased 5 beautiful leather jackets from Mario. We can’t wait to wear them. Thanks Mario for your genuine and friendly service! 🇮🇹👍🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

    My sister and I had the most wonderful experience shopping with Sonia, Aldo and Lucia at La Pelle. Sonia looks you over and then pulls out coats and jackets in styles that match with your own. They have a great selection of bags, belts, wallets, etc. Totally recommend shopping at this wonderful store.

    Glenda, her father Gianni and the team of Massai Orafi have greatly contributed to our visit in Florence. They were very welcoming and friendly when we visited their shop and workplace. Their jewelery is beautifully crafted with outstanding attention for detail. They were knowledgeable and helpful and took their time to answer all of our questions. When we were back home, they provided us with regular updates on the process and delivered truly exquisite pieces. They provided us not only with beautiful jewelery but also a wonderful experience. They are definitely a reason to revisit Florence.

    My boyfriend had discovered the store on his last visit to Florence and bought very nice leather goods there, which are still in great shape after many years. We were therefore now back there and were thrilled how nice we have been served! The owner has advised us very well and we have again bought great products! Really to recommend all around!

    We had a great experience buying leather from this shop! Sam was personable and very reasonable with his prices. He even picked out the best fits for my boyfriend and I for our leather jackets, it felt very customized. The business has been around for a long time, passed down through the family, and it felt good giving our business to such a wonderful owner.

    If you are planning a trip to Florence - do yourself a favor and please go visit Davide's store. He is located close to the historic Ponte Vecchio and his store is full of the most cutting edge designs out there. This is not the leather you see at the Market - this is quality leather with beautiful stitching and design. He also has an uncanny ability to look at a person and know what will look most flattering on them.

    Go, go, go......

    Loved our visit to MG! My husband & I stopped by her gem of a shop while in Florence in mid-June on the recommendation of our trip planner. We are so glad we did! MG is one of the few artisans who makes & hand-paints her own products rather than mass producing them. She was lovely! She showed us her workstation there in the shop & talked to us about her inspiration for the pieces we liked most. We will enjoy the pieces we purchased (which arrived in the US packaged well & on time) & will visit her again next time we are in Florence.

    This review is for the 5 day Grape Trotters Piemonte tour in September of 2021. If you read nothing else, know that if you enjoy wine, the Grape Trotters tours are second to none. I have visited Italy several times, and in 2019 I had the opportunity to take a couple of the Tuscany in a Bottle day trips (Brunello and Elite Cru) which were magnificent. However, I discovered that they also offered multi-day trips in several regions of Italy and France. My original trip was for the Rhone region of France, which was supposed to depart in June of 2021. Covid got in the way of that trip, but the Piemonte tour was still a go in September of 2021. The stress levels were high as the trip approached given the pandemic, but I received an email a couple weeks beforehand confirming the trip would proceed! Our group was small, only 8 people, which included Rebecca, our guide. Every day was amazing. I had thought that once we went to Barolo, the trip would go downhill, but I was 100% wrong. I learned about Roero and Barbera, Arneis and Timarasso, and several other varietals. One might think this tour was for wine experts, but not at all. Its for anyone who enjoys wine. Aside from the pleasure of trying so many different wines, I learned a staggering amount about the region. We visited several wineries that have limited exports to the US, and they provide contact info if you would like to stay in touch. Two of the wineries produce fewer than 20,000 bottles per year, and they make some spectacular wines. I believe only one of the wineries had any substantial exports to the US. Rebecca handled all the shipping to save us some money (its a bit pricier to ship from the winery, though you can if you want to) and I shipped a lot of wine. Beyond wine, every restaurant we ate at was well researched and spectacular. Some places had a course menu with a wine pairing and others were a la Carte. We even got to have lunch at one of the wineries where the food was prepared by the mother of the winery owner. On top of that there was still plenty of time on your own to do some exploring. The hotel was the top rated hotel in Alba, and the staff was wonderful. I have never had a better trip to Italy, or anywhere else. If you enjoy wine, you MUST try one of these tours.

    I have been wanting to buy a good quality Italian leather jacket since I visited Florence with my family in 2013. Unfortunately, at that time, I was nervous of the risks in buying cheap or fake leather in the Italian markets, so caution prevented me from buying something. In hindsight, I have since learned that I'd made the right decision at that time. During this "romantic" break in Florence, my girlfriend and I discovered Michelangelo's leather shop. The quality of the leather is exceptional. Michelangelo was also extremely helpful, patient and kind, as well as extremely charming and sincere. Initially torn between brown and black jackets, after a brief sojourn for coffee, we returned and I purchased a beautifully made black leather jacket. The leather was kid glove soft and the jacket made with the highest quality. I would recommend Michelangelo to anyone looking for high quality, beautifully made, jackets (or bags and wallets) at a very reasonable price.

    Thank you, Michelangelo, for your kindness, humour and looking after us so well. Until next time. Ciao

    Hands down the most picturesque perfume store I've ever been to. It feels like a museum with perfume products in. Staff so friendly, beautiful smiles no matter if you're purchasing anything or not.

    This is a unique shop stocked with some very traditional Italian food items. Great variety of brands at a medium to high price. Great place to shop for gifts as well as to do your groceries.

    We went twice and were helped by two different people. Both were very helpful and patient. We were very happy buying from them.
