Florence is the perfect place to buy gifts and souvenirs for your family and friends. The city is known for its leather goods and jewelry. You can buy a wallet or belt for the men in your life and jewelry for your mom or sister. After shopping in the numerous leather/jewelry stores, you can walk through the street market. The vendors are there from morning to night selling Italian treats. I always come back from Florence with at least one purse and a Ciao Bella t-shirt.
