Where to Shop with Teenagers in Tuscany

Teens love our luxury villas, of course, but many won’t feel their holiday is 100 percent perfect without somewhere to shop. You may be hunting down artisan products, food and wine; chances are, your teen isn’t. This guide — by a parent who has been there — suggests some tried-and-tested spots.

Adopted as Tuscany's wooden son, Pinocchio is the star of a morality tale enjoyed around the world.
