Dolce Emporio is one of the few historic shops that remain in Florence. Established in 1961, this shop in Florence's San Frediano neighborhood will seem like heaven to anyone with a sweet tooth. Among the hundreds of Italian and imported confections are chocolates from brands such as Amedei and Venchi, cookies, and cakes (including gluten-free and vegan options). You'll also find great gift ideas, with a wide selection of preserves, coffee, wines, liqueurs, champagne, pastas, and Tuscan specialties. Check the owner's blog for recipes and the latest news.
