Being a student and living in a city for four months is completely different than being a tourist who breezes through for a couple of days. I am sure by now Florence and your experience of living here, means way more that a fake statue of David souvenir.
Check out our list of souvenirs that you will be able to cherish, and in some cases keep forever as a memory of a city that will forever be a part of you.
A bottle of wine from Pozzo DiVino Wine Shop is the perfect gift for anybody. Whether you want something that you can drink and share straight away or perhaps something that you can keep for years and drink on a special occasion, Pino will help you to find the perfect bottle of wine. Make sure to check out their olive oil and balsamic vinegar as well.
A piece of art made my David Cassar is a very unique and personalized gift. If you ask he will paint your favorite spot in Florence and you will even be able to sit with him while he paints. This is the perfect opportunity to get a one of a kind piece of artwork.
Florence attracts so many talented and creative people. David has made Florence his home for the last ten years. He completely understands how you can get attached to such a beautiful city. Check out the Campus Florence discount on your original landscape painting.

Five: A Tattoo in Florence
Looking for something more permanent to remind you of your time spent in Florence? Head on over to Sweaty Betty’s Tattoo parlor. The owner, Paul, Canadian but long term Florence resident, runs an extremely clean and professional tattoo shop. Together with his staff (all english speaking) they can help you decide and deisgn the tattoo of your dreams.
Sweaty Betty is not yet on Campus Florence but hopefully really, really soon!!! Watch this space 😉 However, Paul and his studio come highly recommended by many students and friends.
