First, there are 7 locations in Florence, some small, some bigger, but all are small. I believe we went into the location on Via Cavour, 49r but I cannot be sure. As many of you know days and hours blend together when you are on...More
Just found the rolls of paper that I bought last summer... they are beautiful and I cannot wait to frame them. The shop workers are always kind and allowed shoppers to do their own thing, but also answered questions well.
Wish we had more time to visit. Would love to explore if they offer book rebinding. Their paperwork would look beautiful in some find leather bound editions. We definitely will explore their offerings online.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the
Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
