  • 1. Antica Bottega di Prospero

    Stop by this shop for top-quality local food products, including farro, dried porcini mushrooms, olive oil, and wine.

    Via San Lucia 13, Lucca, Tuscany, 55100, Italy
  • 2. Antica Latteria di Maurizio e Tiziana

    Maurizio and Tiziana's shop has an arresting array of cheeses and perhaps the best array of verdure sott'olio in town. They also make top-notch panini, and killer sweets.

    Via San Matteo 19, San Gimignano, Tuscany, 53037, Italy
  • 3. Antica Macelleria Cecchini

    This just might be the world's most dramatic butcher shop. Here, amid classical music and lively conversation, owner Dario Cecchini holds court: while quoting Dante, he serves samples of his very fine sushi di Chianina (raw slices of Chianina beef gently salted and peppered). He has researched recipes from the 15th century, and sells pâtés and herb concoctions found nowhere else. Serious food enthusiasts should not miss the place.

    Via XX Luglio 11, Panzano, Tuscany, 50020, Italy
  • 4. Antonio Mattei

    Prato's biscotti (literally "twice-cooked" cookies) have an extra-dense texture, lending themselves to submersion in your caffè or vin santo. The best biscotti in town are at Antonio Mattei, which has been around since 1858. Its brutti ma buoni (ugly but good) almond-laced cookies are especially delicious.

    Via Ricasoli 20/22, Prato, Tuscany, 59100, Italy
  • 5. Caniparoli

    Chocolate lovers will be pleased with the selection of artisanal chocolates, marzipan delights, and gorgeous cakes. Creations become even more fanciful during Christmas and Easter.

  • 6. Enoteca Vanni

    A huge selection of wines, as well as an ancient cellar, make this place worth a stop. For the cost of the wine only, tastings can be organized through the shopkeepers and are held in the cellar or outside in a lovely little piazza. All of this can be paired with affettati misti (sliced cured meats) and cheeses of the highest caliber.

    Piazza San Salvatore 7, Lucca, Tuscany, 55100, Italy
  • 7. Nannini


    Locals flock to this central café to quaff a cappuccino and pick up panforte (the chocolate panforte is a real treat) and ricciarelli to go.

    Banchi di Sopra 24, Siena, Tuscany, 53100, Italy
  • 8. Pasticceria Taddeucci

    A particularly delicious version of buccellato—the sweet, anise-flavored bread with raisins that is a Luccan specialty—is baked at Pasticceria Taddeucci.

    Piazza San Michele 34, Lucca, Tuscany, 55100, Italy
  • 9. Anna Maria Molesini

    A large loom dominates this tiny workshop and showroom where scarves, shawls, throws, and jackets are woven. Anna Maria's work, mostly in mohair, is done in lively hues.

    Via Gramsci 45, Volterra, Tuscany, 56048, Italy
  • 10. Antico Pizzicheria


    There has been a salumeria (delicatessen) here since 1889. The cheeses, cured meats, and made-to-order panini are top-notch.

    Via di Città 93–95, Siena, Tuscany, 53100, Italy
  • 11. Antiques Market

    On the third weekend of the month, an antiques market happens in and around Piazza San Martino. Vendors unveil their wares around 8:30, and start packing up around dusk. There's something for everyone, including old-fashioned glassware, ancient coins, and furniture—some items are antique, some are just old.

    Piazza del Duomo, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy
  • 12. Bartoloni: La Ceramica Tradizionale di Montelupo

    Down the road from the Museo della Ceramica, this shop produces objects in a range of styles.

    Corso Garibaldi 36, Montelupo Fiorentino, Tuscany, 50056, Italy
  • 13. Bookstalls

    Just behind the church of San Giusto (off Via Beccheria, which runs for about two blocks between Piazza Napoleone and Piazza San Michele) are bookstalls that open their cupboard doors on clement days (including Sunday), from about 10 am to 7 pm. You may discover anything from hand-tinted prints of orchids to back issues of Uomo Ragno (Spider-Man looks and acts just the same even when he's speaking Italian).

    Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy
  • 14. Bottega dell'Arte


    If you've always wanted a 14th- or 15th-century painting to hang on your wall, but the cost of acquiring one is prohibitive, consider purchasing one of the superb copies at this shop made by Chiara or her brother, Michelangelo Casoni. Their work in tempera and gold leaf is of the highest quality.

    Via Stalloreggi 47, Siena, Tuscany, 53100, Italy
  • 15. Camillo Rossi

    At Camillo Rossi, which has been around since 1912, you can watch artisans create household items in alabaster and then buy their wares.

    Piazza della Peschiera 3, Volterra, Tuscany, 56048, Italy
  • 16. Ceramica ND Dolfi

    Run by the same family for three generations, this ceramics-making compound is 3 km (2 miles) from Montelupo on the road heading east toward Florence. Here you'll find a sun-drenched spazio aziendale (selling floor), a factory workshop, the family residence, and a yard where terra-cotta planters are displayed. The ceramics, all priced reasonably given the high-quality handcrafted work, include large vases, plates suitable for hanging, and brightly colored serving pieces for the table.

    Via Toscoromagnola 1, Montelupo Fiorentino, Tuscany, 50056, Italy
  • 17. Cooperativa Artieri Alabastro

    Since 1895, two large showrooms here are housed in medieval buildings and contain a large number of alabaster objects for sale, including bookends, ashtrays, and boxes.

    Piazza dei Priori 5, Volterra, Tuscany, 56048, Italy
