Visiting Florence in a week's time
In ten days time, my family and I (4 adults & 2 young kids) will be coming over to Florence for five days and staying in Via Santo Spirito. On our trip there, apart from hoping to visit some great historical places, I will also be on the lookout to buy Murano and other glass beads suitable for handmade jewellery. Could you please be so kind enough to let me know where to go (shops or market or factory), so to save time and not bother my 3 & 5 year old? This information would be greatly appreciated.
Also, are there any special places/attractions that my kids can really enjoy apart from all the serious museums.
Hope to hear from you soon,

My wife and I will be arriving on the same day. We will be the ones taking pictures and looking like tourist, ha. Enjoy your trip and be safe.

Where to go with children in Firenze?
What about places to go with children? Any children's museums around or toy museums?

Try these 3 shops in Florence and let us know what you find, most have a mix and wide variety of beads, which could include Chinese made.
