  • We fell upon this beautiful shop. Bound leather books, designs all more original than the others, and all it's handmade and family. In addition, the vendors are friendly. I fell in love with their work.

  • You can find lots of gorgeous & handmade leather products in L’Arte. It’s worth for you to buy handmade leather-bound scrapbook for sharing personal fond memories. Very Good service & nice staff for recommending their products. 👍🏻
  • I loved this cute little art shop! I went to it three out of the three days I was in Florence and I just fell in love with a Rosewood ballpoint pen in the window. I bought it and it works magic. I can't wait to use it for the years to come. But I can't figure out how to change the ink. The only reason I don't give Te store full stars is they didn't tell me when I bought the pen.
  • Unique store with gorgeous handmade items.
  • It's a really cute art shop!
  • The couple operates a handmade gift shop. All production and quality intimately rock! Nice and Florence if you want a souvenir, such as postcards, Pinocchio, magnet sensitivity just go away!
