Just found the rolls of paper that I bought last summer... they are beautiful and I cannot wait to frame them. The shop workers are always kind and allowed shoppers to do their own thing, but also answered questions well.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
