is a magical place for many reasons—one of which is the shopping. Below are Indagare’s Rose Allen’s favorite picks.
Scuola del Cuoio As one of Florence’s best-kept secrets, this workshop and boutique stocks high-quality leather goods and sells everything from small accessories to bags and jackets. Via di San Giuseppe, 5r.
Officina Profumo Farmaceutica Santa Maria Novella Founded in 1621 by Dominican friars, this world-renowned Italian brand sells expertly made herbal remedies, perfumes, colognes and soaps crafted from ancient recipes. Via della Scala, 16.
Il Mercato Centrale Located on the first floor of Florence’s oldest covered food market, Il Mercato Centrale is made up of gourmet shops, restaurants, a pizzeria, café and pub. This market is great for a fresh Florentine lunch, and visitors can purchase delicious goodies to bring home.
Dr. Vranjes Created by the store’s eponymous cosmetology expert, these beauty products, perfumes and home fragrances are beautifully packaged —and impossible to resist. Via San Gallo 63 R.
