If you are interested in fashion, Tuscany is the right place for you. We usually think of Tuscany as an expensive place to go shopping, but we are wrong. You can find from artisan products up to leather and gold.
Walking around streets like Via Tornabuoni, Via della Vigna Nuova or Via dei Calzaiuoli in Florence will take you to brand name boutiques such as Gucci, Cavalli, Prada, Dolce & Gavanna etc. But if you are looking for more reasonable prices and great deals, outlets are an excellent alternative. You will find brand name shops and Italian fashion designer clothes not far from the main cities.
We can also find what are called “typical toscan products”. These include the fine craftsmanship required to make elegant gold jewellery found on Ponte Vecchio in Florence or the Italian leather that has been renowned since medieval times and can be found in Florence and around the Arno valley.
Markets are a good alternative for those who prefer shopping outdoors. We can find them around the historic centre of cities such as Florence and they offer a great variety of products.
