Florence is home to famous fashion houses that have seen their dawn in the Tuscan city and that still have their factories here: Gucci, Ferragamo and Ermanno Scervino are just some of the names. The most important fashion houses have their boutiques and shops in Via dei Tornabuoni and Via della Vigna. The area is worth the time of a walk for its elegance that gives a magical atmosphere.
