This was a very interesting and different tour that allowed you to see parts of Florence that people usually miss. I was welcomed by my tour guide, Barbara, who gave an ifnormative insight into florence in terms of fashion and its history. I was the only one on this tour, but it never felt strange or awkward. We walked to florence's leather school factory where we were able to watch students making leather bags and ask questions on the leather making process. Then we walked to the Gucci museum, where I learnt about the history of Gucci and his iconic fashion line.We then made our way to Via Tornabuoni, where Barbara discussed the importance of the street in terms of business and fashion. We stopped at Loretta Caponi's embroidery shop and finished the tour at the Santa Maria Novella Perfumery. It was a good afternoon tour, that I would definetely recommend to those who are interested in fashion or seeing something different in Florence.
