Villa San Michele

Personal Shopper

Treat yourself to a visit to Florence’s most stylish boutiques with our personal shopper, who will create an itinerary to mirror your fashion tastes. This exclusive service is available for both men and women.
Drive through the city’s historic centre by golf cart or in a private car with a driver, among palaces, piazzas and enticing boutiques.

After shopping till you drop, enjoy a glimpse of Florence’s artisan traditions with a visit to the oldest existing workshop of Florentine mosaics. Here, craftsmen demonstrate the renowned Florentine technique of inlaid semi-precious stone mosaic work.

If your interest leans towards ceramics, you may choose to visit one of the most prestigious traditional ceramic workshops in the city, where experts make and decorate items by hand, using a technique that allows the colours to remain intact throughout the years.

Advance reservation is advised. Please contact our concierge.
