  • On the recommendation of a classy B&B, IL Bargello, whose proprietress was a happy client, we bought several pairs of fairly priced, hand made golden earrings created by Massai Orafi in October 2017. ...  more »
  • Seems weird writing a review on a ... jewellery making, but from "exiled Florentine" I would certainly recommend to anyone the pleasure and the opportunity to visit a beautiful city like Florence, characterized by beauties on every street corner, more or less well known and often off the beaten track, more "traditional" circuits to make a leap from traditional Massai, brothers Florentine goldsmiths. Most people know or talk about "gold" and "Ponte Vecchio", when they think about a "souvenir of Florence" (unless you are satisfied of questionable taste and wooden Capris natali definitely not fiorentini!). And everyone knows how expensive the gold and how hard it is to find a really valuable and pay it for what it is its value (in terms of raw material and workmanship) without getting "plucking" because tourists. Sometimes, though, just make two more steps in the right direction to find "the pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow". Are now decades, if not longer, I know (he "discovered" my mother years earlier) and I attend the Massai, brothers in Florence (there is also a pair of twins-I challenge you to understand who is the twin of whom), which in the gold we wallow in forever. Have "inherited" for merits in the field a family activity. Personally, the "brother Massai" reference for me has always been John, very nice great professionalism and competence and two toscanaccio, hands as an authentic artist of the noble metal. By brothers Massai go with an idea or desire and leave with a jewel and a smile. Are master goldsmiths, don't just sell jewelry. They create, on an idea or an idea supplied by the customer, for example. And they always recommend the best solution, with gold and precious stones. Recently I turned to little brothers with Golden hands to ask them to make a pendant to give away, along with my classmates in gym, our trainer, lover of very special exercise equipment, well, the result was surprising and surprise for our instructor was very successful: a highly original gift, unique, because that cannot be found elsewhere, released by the skilled hands of "Henry and his brothers". Without talking about the time I wanted to give a pendant to "important" birthday of a dear friend and neighbor Massai have transformed a semiprecious stone in a pendant that left everyone breathless! Goldsmith in Florence? I found mine "Golden Goose" by Massai. PS: don't forget to ask about the "drawer of opportunities".

  • In October I had the great pleasure to visit Andrea at the Massai Orafi workshop in Florence. I saw a spectacular rose-gold and diamond ring in a Renaissance design, and chose it as my birthday/annive...  more »

  • I have been visiting the brothers Massai for over 15 years every time I go to Florence. I can not say enough good things about this little jewel in Florence. You walk into their workshop -- literally. They have some amazing pieces already made (their Buccellati replicas are pieces of art!) and they do great custom work too. You can bring in old gold you no longer wear and they'll repurpose it for you. They speak English, are friendly, accommodating, creative and have THE BEST PRICES IN FLORENCE!!! To me this is a MUST stop when in Florence.
  • Antique jewelry workshop, since 1950. Realization of precious metalwork, gold, precious stones, and precious stones. All exclusively handmade, homemade.

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.
