I have had a love of fashion ever since I was a child and have always cultivated my own personal style since I can remember. 20 years ago I moved to Florence from Canada and enrolled in a 3 year Fashion Marketing course with the acclaimed fashion institute, Polimoda. I now work as a consultant for luxury brand, Salvatore Ferragamo, with expertise in Ladies' Leathergoods and have developed my own personal shopping business, Shop In Florence. I love meeting new people and sharing my love of fashion. It will be a pleasure to introduce you to our many unique boutiques and Made in Italy products!
Florence is the perfect city for walking! The tour will be concentrated within the city center, mostly off of the main streets and away from the crowds. I meticulously plan the itinerary so that there isn't too much walking from shop to shop. Mid way through the tour, if you feel the need to refuel we can stop at my favorite gelateria for a taste of some of the best ice cream in town!
