Shop and eat like a Florentine with this pocket-sized guide to the best of the magnificent Tuscan city known for its art, culture, and cuisine. Celebrated graphic designer and self-described Italophile Louise Fili and connoisseur of all things Lisa Apatoff take you on eight updated walks through Florence, discussing more than 70 of the city's most alluring shops -- some run by the same families for generations, others offering young entrepreneurs' fresh interpretations of traditional techniques. Discerning travellers will discover rare books and charming hats; vintage Pucci and handmade shoes; cioccolata da bere (drinkable chocolate); colourful buttons; and bolts of rich silk fabric in this enchanting introduction to makers and purveyors of clothing, home decor, accessories, specialty foods, and much more.
