This whole area is known for spectacular leather, but so much of it is poor quality and not so nice. This store is what you think of when you think of a chic Italian leather store that no one has discovered yet: wallets, bags, clutches in the softest leather imaginable in brown, black, grey (if you’re feeling safe), and shades like silver, orange, Kelly green (if you’re not). “It also has a limited range of beautiful handmade clothing pieces,” adds Voigtmann.

Tuscany, like any tourist destination in the world, is full of trinket shops and fake authenticity. Aracne is the exception—and one that you’d walk right past if you didn’t know to look for it. “Beautiful blankets and wraps and other textiles handmade on an old loom right in the shop,” explains Voigtmann. It’s the reason you’ll want extra room in your suitcase.
