What to expect

Get an insider’s perspective on Florence’s rich arts and crafts scene with this specialty shopping tour. Visit workshops where skilled artisans carry on traditions that date back centuries, creating unique handmade products prized around the world.

Watch craftspeople at work in renowned leather, mosaic and goldsmith shops, and don't miss the chance to purchase quality Florentine goods like jewelry, bags, bound books and marbled paper. At the end of the 3-hour private tour, toast your purchases with a glass of bubbly Italian prosecco!

The popular arts in Florence have always been related to the textile industry and manual skills, so you will have the opportunity to visit one of the most secret goldsmith workshops by the Ponte Vecchio, which is usually closed to the public but will be exclusively open for you.

Then focus on another of the oldest arts in Florence: the Florentine mosaic, born more than 400 years ago thanks to the Medici family as a sort of "eternal painting" to decorate their Chapel.

After mosaics, discover another Florentine excellence: the Leather School close to the Church of Santa Croce. Here 20 pupils are selected every year to learn the secrets of making a perfect leather bag, belt, wallet or purse. The school has been owned by the same family for about 60 years and still offers the highest quality and excellent manufacture.
