The stationery shops of Parione,both in Florence and Fiesole,are really worth visiting.I bought some Christmas cards in Fiesole a couple of years back and although I am now back in Wales living,a simple telephone call to Stefano and more are on the way to me. Really helpful people and their Christmas cards always bring kind comments from those persons I send them to. I can recommend with confidence. Terry.
It is what a Stationery Shop should be like and carries some of the most original things I saw in Florence...and I lived there for 3 years! The owner and his wife and elegant, knowledgeable, helpful, and charming. Whenever I needed the perfect gift that was not too personal and not too impersonal, they had the perfect items. I still visit them when I return. Enjoy the experience! I even ordered small note cards made with my name!
Being in this shop was a step back in time,from the paper music boxes to miniature libraries of long ago literary figures. The stationery is magnificent,as is everything in the shop.The ladies and gentlemen are there to help you in everyway speaking many languages and their obvious love of their shop is infectious!I purchased four three dimensional cards depicting various vistas of Florence;Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio to name two, had them mounted in sections, and framed in shadow boxes. Santa Croce has all the lovely shadows it had when my grandson ran joyously across the square. I cannot recommend this shop highly enough, for the breathtaking beauty of its merchandise and the joy of the entire experience.This is most assuredly not your usual tourist destination and you will find yourself shopping in a lovely,hushed and beautiful piece of Florence . Treat yourself to a few hours browsing in this quiet little corner of the city.
