Do you know how assertive Florence is in leather business? I hear you say that leatherwork and leather products are widespread in Turkey and more advantageous in terms of money, and you are not wrong. However, it is a little difficult to catch the elegance of Italian designs no matter what we do.
All kinds of leather clothes, belts and even gloves, especially bags, wallets, are ideal for those who think about what to buy in Florence and who are looking for stylish and lifetime options as well as original. In fact, I especially recommend gloves.
Leather goods shopping can be done in Florence in two ways. It is possible to find affordable options in the markets in the city, especially in San Lorenzo Market.
Of course, bargaining is necessary. If you are looking for some elegant products, let’s take you to Florence’s well-established leather brands and stores.

Pinocchio Themed Products
Carlo Collodi, the author of the world-famous Pinocchio novels, was born in Florence. You can find many pinocchio-themed products in Florence, known as the city where Pinocchio was born.
In our opinion, the most original souvenirs sold are sold in Bartolucci stores located close to Santa Groce Square.
In this store, you can find many wooden ornaments, from small pinocchio figurines to very cute room decorations. Wooden nameplates hung on the door are sold for 18 euros. You can also find many specially designed special products and handmade magnets.
For those who do not want to shake the budget while thinking about what to buy in Florence, small souvenirs and magnets are a valid choice all over the world.
What makes this type of products special to the city you are traveling to is the presence of colors, textures and prints of historical artifacts specific to that city. Souvenirs and magnets, the prices of which vary between 1 and 5 Euros, are available in the markets as well as in all shops in touristic areas.
A magnet with a Florence image, small figurines or wall decorations will remind you of Florence every time you look at them, among the most affordable souvenirs and souvenirs.
Almost everywhere in the city, which you will see, shops sell these entertainment masks, my suggestion is Tragicomica.

Hats, which you can see in almost all Venetian gondolier, are among the products identified with the city. Let’s face it, you won’t be able to use these hats as an accessory in Turkey, but if you want to get a souvenir from Venice, why not.
It is a relatively affordable option that will remind you of Venice every time you look at it. You can find gondolier hats made in China for 10 Euros, but Made in Venezia hats are around 30-40 Euros.
Pasta is one of the most delicious foods that has been famous for many years outside of Italy. And I’m sure you’ll have plenty to eat when you visit Venice.
In the article What to Buy in Venice, my suggestion is to buy pasta from this fascinating city. You can find dozens of types of pasta such as penne, spaghetti, tortellini, and even green or red options mixed with tomato or spinach in many stores in the city.
However, my suggestion to you is “Giacomo Rizzo“. The store, where you can find even gondola-shaped pastas unique to Venice, is a place that is very enjoyable to visit, with a thousand and one kinds of pasta specializing in 5-10 Euros.
