Tours / CRAFT WORKSHOPS OF FLORENCE: PRIVATE TOUR

Experience an authentic, inimitable Florence by walking through the workshops of renowned artisans all over the world.

We will see how the Florentine marble paper is painted by hand and see the famous hard stone inlaid works from the only craftsman who still produces it. The Opicifio delle pietre dure was born under Ferdinando I dei Medici in 1588, but as early as the eighteenth century, the inlaid hard stone was no longer produced because of it's high cost. We will have the opportunity to see the refined and very difficult process! Next, have you ever been in a real goldsmith's shop? Our tour will take us to one of the old Florentine houses where gold is still worked by hand! We will see the shop of a luxury framer, then an antique dealer, whose study is like the setting of Alice in Wonderland and ... dulcis in fundo, we will enter the workshop of Pinocchio!

In this tour of the artisan shops of Florence lies the ancient art of Made in Florence!
