As the home of some of the world's greatest works of art — Michelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus — Florence is one of the best places to pick up artsy souvenirs. From pretty postcards and kitschy aprons sporting the body of David on the front to original artwork sold in various piazzas, the city on the Arno is brimming with art-inspired gifts. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors love Florence’s wearable art. Visit the School of Leather (Scuola del Cuoio) to see the leather-makers creating masterpieces out of beautiful hide. Whether it’s a belt, wallet or purse, a souvenir from the School of Leather is a must.
