In my opinion, in the city center many shops have too high prices, especially food shops. Small cups of ice cream can cost more than gold!!! And this is not fair!Once I entered in a bakery store and there was a tourist who wanted to buy 2 cookies. The baker asked him 4 euros for the two cookies, and the tourist left the two cookies in the store and moved away! the funny thing was the that baker complained. So don't be ashamed if you feel that you are paying too much for something in Florence
Warning to all SHOPAHOLICS.....Stay clear of the Via Tornabuoni and Via Vigna Nuova areas of Florence!! If you dare to venture into these areas...bring plenty of cash and leave a lot of room on your credit cards!!! This young woman was clearly a victim. She was last seen being lured into the 'seedy' shops of Prada, Armani, and that vicious King of Italian Fashion....Roberto Cavalli!! Beware of the Gucci ghetto!! If you're an Italian lingerie junkie....then I would definitely advise you to avoid any of these areas! The 'wackos' at La Perla will never let you see the LIGHT OF DAY!!!!!
Well, my first time there I bought some belts as gifts from some of the street vendors and some of them fell apart after 6 months. How Embarrassing! The second time, I only bought leather products from stores ( although it was much more expensive) I am sure some of the vendors have nice wares, but I didn't want to take any chances!
Also some of the vendors are very bold! I was walking down the street and one vendor started chasing after me with some leather pants! He then put his hands all over my hips, telling me that these pants would be the perfect fit and just right for me and how great they would look on me. Well, I told him 'No thanks, but I had already purchased a pair of leather pants '( a big lie)! But he still wouldn't give up! I finally ignored him and just walked away.
