This is the place to go for exquisite, expertly crafted, one-of-a-kind leather goods. Forget the designer labels and invest in one of their incredible creations. The intrecciato products in particular are an unbelievable value.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
