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.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking

including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
