Meet local artisans at work and buy original pieces

Tuscany is a land of artisans and many are already aware of the merchandising logo “Made in Italy” a globally recognised mark of distinction synonymous with quality, creativity and excellence.

Tuscany has a very long tradition of arts and crafts dating back to Medieval times. If you are lucky enough to visit an artisan market often held throughout Tuscany you will be sure to take home a “Made in Italy” souvenir or purchase a special gift for a friend.

Many of the quality goods on offer vary from leather items, clothing, basket ware, pottery and even food and wine. Despite this custom of artistry and flare many traditions are being lost to modernity however here at Authentic Tuscany we can point you in the direction where you can visit some of the last remaining artisans in their studios and buy one-off their pieces.
