Florence is not only the city of Renaissance, of the Medici family and of the many masterpieces of art: it is also a good place to go shopping. Florence is, in fact, the birthplace of some of the greatest stylists of all time: Guccio Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci, historical figures of Italian fashion, and newer names such as Ermanno Scervino, Patrizia Pepe and Roberto Cavalli, who kept on in the tradition of the local prêt-a-porter. Today their boutiques shine in the city center and are visited by fashion lovers from all over the world, who come to Florence to go shopping and buy some original handcrafted articles created by Italian tailors.
January is the perfect moment to go shopping in Florence and to buy luxury clothes and accessories from the most prestigious brands. The special offers start at the beginning of the month and continue until the end of February: it's just the right moment to go shopping in Florence. For an experience of luxury shopping, you can visit the stores in via Tornabuoni, via Roma, piazza Repubblica, piazza Strozzi and via della Vigna Nuova; for more affordable items, on the other hand, in the via dei Calzaiuoli, via dei Cerretani and via Por Santa Maria you'll find the international chains of fashion, cosmetics, and accessories.
