Shops around Florence have all the candy you can ever want!

First up: Rivoire!

The popular vote undoubtedly goes to Venchi.  You should see the lines outside the store.

My favorite little candy shop in Florence is Mignone.  Here are their offerings for Easter:

I think these Ladybug Easter packages are my favorite!  I love ladybugs!

And I also want to give a shout out to Vestri.  I didn’t make it there today to take pictures, but I know their Easter candies would be excellent indeed!
