There are many wonderful stores in Florence from Gucci to Armani, but two of my favorites which you can’t find anywhere else include:
Madova Gloves: Madova Gloves, just over the Ponte Vecchio at Via de Guicciardini 1, has the best gloves. I have been buying them for years as the quality is really amazing.
Parri’s Leather Goods: Parri’s has beautiful leather goods and is just down and across the street from Madova at Via de Guicciardini 18. I still have my leather jacket from thirty years ago.
Also excellent is Borsalino, a wonderful store to buy men’s and women’s hats. The address is Via Porta Rossa 40.
