  • Best purchase made in Italy, one of a kind, original and the owners are amazing people. I love my new shoes and will always stop by when in Florence. This is what coming to Italy is all about!!  more »
  • During a visit to Florence in 2012 I bought a beautifully fitted black leather jacket which I wear often. The leather is soft, supple and has a beautiful grain; so delicate that it almost feels and mo...  more »
  • The shop is close to the "Golden Bridge". Very large selection of shoes, jackets and bags made of leather. The friendly poodavcy a bit to understand Russian language. Bought Sandals from Python skin, very happy.

  • This is one of the stores that Rick Steves recommends for leather item purchases - and I had my most pleasant shopping experience here. Aldo and Sonia are sweet, personable, and reasonable. They are just genuinely nice and aren't pushy. Don't haggle hard here - there's no reason. The craftsmanship of the items are top notch, and the prices are fair. They've had the store since 1983, and Aldo himself started out as a cutter for leather clothing. I myself bought a python bag, but the jackets were beautiful (second floor for ladies' items). The perforated leather jacket I saw on the second floor was similar to the jacket I've seen at Kiton - priced there at $15,000 - and was around 600 Euros at La Pelle. Absolutely elegant sage color and beautiful to touch. Had I been in the market for one, I would have spent much longer here. They will also take the tax off your purchase and give you the duty free form if you purchase with a credit card. I go to Ponte Vecchio (for jewelry, and leather bags, shoes, and small goods) and Santa Croce for all my shopping (for clothes and silver jewelry) in Florence, and for leather bags and jackets, La Pelle is pretty much the only place I recommend. They also have some shoes but a limited selection, and there are other places I recommend for those :)
  • I bought a leather belt for my father. She was very kind and recommended a very good item. My dad loved it so much. Thanks a lot 😊 I want to visit again and to buy leather jacket!
  • Shop owners were very nice, we spent the last night researching where to find quality leathers in Florence. The quality of leather at the San Lorenzo market is lacking. This place had friendly service with good quality leathers. If I'm ever in the market for leathers and I find myself in Florence, I will be coming back.
  • Come and visit La Pelle Leather Store. Your ITALIAN VERA PELLE made in Tuscany, man's and ladie's garments made of soft 1st grade lamb and goatskin leather naturally dyed. Shoes, bags, wallets, belts and accessories made of precious python, alligator, crocodile, stingray and ostrich leather.
  • Got an amazing jacket and the owners were super helpful and gave me a great deal

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
