Ciao tutti,
Florence is famous for its art, design and fashion. Perusing the stores in the city, many offering unique made in Italy items, is one of the highlights of living or travelling in Tuscany; from home wears to hosiery, there is something for everyone.
I recently took writer Valerie Quintanilla out for an afternoon exploring some favourite places for fashion (Boutique Nadine), perfume (Aqua Flor) and books (Il Torchio) to name just three. Read all about our adventures via Valerie's write up here, a recommended way to spend an afternoon in the city.

Adventure Girl, a U.S.A. based website, recently got in touch asking for an 8 Great Shopping in Florence article - the result? Read here for more of my favourite places to find great fashion, jewellery, home wears and more.

Like to shop and will be in Florence this Summer? I have some exciting events coming up where you can experience a unique afternoon only Florence could provide. There will be food, fashion, music and much more. Full details soon!
Wishing you a wonderful week…
Bacio da Firenze,
