Souvenir Mystery

Jump to last reply

We were in Italy in 2010 (Thanks, Fodorites for all your help with that trip! Your advice was spot-on!) while in Florence, I found these beautiful tiles (they almost looked like frescoes, but I can't be sure what they were made of, or how they were decorated).

Each one had an image and a Latin word representing a profession (doctor, layer, teacher, etc.) They looked like antiques (though I don't think they actually were) and I just fell in love with them! I wanted to get one for my husband and myself but at the time, we couldn't squeeze them into our budget (they were about 45-50 Euro each).

In May, we'll be back in Florence for a DAY while on a Mediterranean cruise and I'm begging my wise Fodorite friends: can ANYONE tell me where/how I might be able to find these? I'm kicking myself for not buying them the last time, and now I don't even know where to begin looking for them. It would be amazing to bring them home this time around!

Thanks in advance for your help!
