Best/Cheapest City for Souvenirs (Italy) - Rome, Florence, Venice?

Jump to last reply

We are leaving Rome tomorrow and will be heading to Florence and eventually Venice. We would like to bring back some souvenirs for ourselves and family/friends and were wondering if things are cheaper or if there are more options in one city over the other.

Ex: the Murano pendants, cashmere pashminas, etc. Are they the same price in each city or is it better to buy it in Rome rather than wait for Florence or Venice, etc?

Also, I heard Italy is known for leather, but didn't see much in Rome (just your usual touristy stores with figurines, necklaces, boxers/tshirts/shawls/purses and then "regular" stores that you'd see in the US). Are things different in Florence?

Just trying to plan ahead - picked up a bunch of Murano pendants for gifts but would hate to wait until Venice and find out that everything is twice the price there for the same items!

(We're not looking to do any huge/extravagant shopping since NYC has great shopping and the exchange rate makes ordinary things much more expensive in Europe. However, we would like to possibly buy some cashmere pasminas, leather items, and a nice Murano piece for ourselves).

Anything else we should keep an eye out for?
