Overview

Shopping here in Florence can be overwhelming! I design personal shopping for tourists and guide them to the great little stores that I love. Many people have only a little time to shop here, and with my help, we can accomplish lots in a short amount of time. We can usually complete the shopping list in 2 hours, but serious shoppers can schedule for more time. Whether it be leather jackets, handbags, shoes, gold, ceramics, scarves, or wine/olive oil, I can save you time with a shopping appointment tailored just for you. My groups are private, only you and your friends or family. I do not take people to the brand name stores, or to the discount malls, only the smaller shops with the owners on site. High quality without the designer label and price! With all of the imitation products flooding the markets, rest assured that I will show you the real Italian artisan made goods.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
