Florence can be bitterly cold in winter when the northerly wind whistles down from the Alps, setting your teeth chattering and turning your lips blue. A woolly hat can make all the difference, and Cinzia’s shop near the Ponte Vecchio has a great selection which she designs herself and has made up locally. Colorful, practical and stylish, these hats make wonderful fashion accessories (and good gifts to take home!).
