This was a great shop (Via Camillo Cavour) and the Marbling class was great! The marbling class was amazing! We learned the process of Marbling and the history of it. We got to make our own designs and Marbled paper. My family (2 adults and two children; 8 and 12) did the class all together. The children loved the class and were so proud of their work. My wife and I had a blast as well. The shop the amazing. The items were fantastic! We purchased several items that were reasonably priced. Overall, a strong recommendation to visit the shop and take the Marbling Class.

Wish I could give this gem of a store 100 stars! The owner is a 5th generation paper maker and is the friendliest man in all of Florence. We chatted with him for nearly an hour and he invited me back the next day to give me a lesson on how to make the marbled paper. Alas, we were leaving, but next time I get to Florence, I'm carving our an entire day - or week- just for Francesco! The shop was lovely and the paper products are top notch. I think there are a few of these stores, but the one by the Duomo is the real deal.

Loved this store, we happened to walk by and went inside to see the amazing artwork in papers, cards, maps, papermaking at it's best in Florence. The gentleman at the store told us we can go to the back room area to view the machines on how they make these beautiful artwork. Highly recommend this store to visit if you appreciate fine artwork such as papermaking and bookbinding work.

We stumbled across this shop walking back to our hotel and loved what we found inside. It’s had gorgeous cards and notebooks and the staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. Products are on expensive side but I think you’re paying for the quality and uniqueness. Would recommend visiting this store

This was excellent. We were with a private guide, so we got to go int he back of the store and have a private tutorial on how the paper was dyed and it was quite an experience. Something I had never seen before!
I highly recommend seeing if you can go into the back where the paper is colored!!

This was such a cool experience! One day, a friend and I were in the store watching the demonstrations in the back. At one point, they told us we could take a workshop and do it ourselves! So we signed up.
The next week, we came back and were led through the process of making the design, dying the paper, and binding a book. The shop keepers were so so friendly and kind the entire time, bringing us coffee at one point, answering all of our questions, and letting us take a MILLION pictures. We could take our book home that day and it was 100% done by us. We also got an adorable certificate for attending. It only cost 70 euros and felt very affordable for the amount of time we spent there.

Such a beautiful store if you appreciate fine paper. We were lucky enough to see the owner make a sample. It was worth the stop.

This has the most amazing selection of beautiful paper artifacts, from bookmarks to notebooks, diaries, playing cards, wrapping paper and more. It is a great place to browse, but you will want to come away with something, I can guarantee it!

This is a wonderful little shop with marbled paper, journals and more. Such a great place to find a truly Florentine gift for a friend, purchase a unique card or get a lovely leather journal with colorful marbled accents. The only negative is that is somewhat pricey. That said, it is definitely worth checking out even if you only window shop.
