A great place to get some authentic, hand made ceramics. A wide variety of patterns, with pieces of varying size and cost. One of the nicest shops we came across in Florence.

Small but cute shop just a few blocks from Piazza San Marco filled with beautiful ceramics. They have many different items of different sizes and price points, which made it very easy for us to buy several items for ourselves and family. I don't think the designs are necessarily unique to this shop--in fact, we were able to find a... More

If you want to bring home a piece of Florentine pottery as a souvenir, this is the place to go. Very close to the Accademia. Small shop chock full of the most beautiful pottery you can imagine. Impossible to choose, every piece is lovelier than the next. They will ship if you cannot carry your purchases home. Prices were reasonable... More

This is our favorite ceramics shop in Florence. The collection of Deruta ware is first-rate, with patterns that are, in our opinion, unmatched by any other shops in town. Perhaps you might find better in Deruta itself, but as far as Florence is concerned, this shop is perfect.

So lucky we walked by this shop! We stopped in while owner was closing and quickly bought a couple of pieces, will stop in today for more. Extensive selection of Tuscany pottery, best prices I've found so far. Located off of Via Cavour, between Duomo and Accademia Gallery. A real find! www.labotteghina.it Via Guelfa, 5r

If you want to purchase authentic Tuscan ceramics, and the town of Deruta isn’t on the itinerary for your trip, Botteghina is the next best thing. Lovely small shop with attentive owner, great variety in handpainted ceramics – some one of a kind – shipping isn’t cheap but is easy.

I first visited this store in 2011 and was just astonished at all the beautiful pieces in this little unassuming store on Via Guelfa. When we decided to return to Firenze this fall with some of our extended family, I made sure a visit to La Botteghina del Ceramista was on the itinerary. As it turned out, I went there... More

I went searching for this little shop after reading several favorable reviews. It was a great find and highlight of my trip. So many treasures - beautiful ceramics at a wide range of prices for every budget. I was so busy picking out gifts that I wish I had selected more for myself - a good reason to return. Mrs.... More

My husband and I walked by La Botteghina in Florence for two days before we went inside. I fell in love with the work of one particular artist, Silvana Argenti, and we bought as many pieces as we could reasonably carry for the remainder of our trip. Mrs. Daniela packed everything very well, and we went on our way. When... More
