Antico Setificio Fiorentino

In a style really different to the expected heavy and over-the-top Florentine Dynasty fashion, Antico Setificio Fiorentino designs and produces delicate, impressive and colourful silk creations. The showroom is a great part of the tour and will certainly put you in the mood for a Chantilly looking Ermisino silk purchase.


When it comes to shopping, Tuscany is Italy at its finest. Boutiques overflowing with crystalware, jewels and gold pieces of art, leather or high quality Italian fabrics : the streets and towns of Tuscany would not be the same without their floating sense of exclusivity and luxury. But the region is also a constant celebration of traditional houseware, ceramics and terracotta plates, where the handmade is king. And if your heart has a stronger tilt for the pleasures of the palate, exploring the region's cities and countryside is always the occasion for wine tasting (one word: Chianti), trying some traditional pastry or marvel in the local olive oil and other natural products.
