Boscovivo is a fabulous shop located in the heart of Florence.

It sells Tuscan delicacies - everything from olive oils, truffles, mushrooms, jams, sauces and dressings, and of course a good selection of Tuscan wines.

It was conveniently located close to our hotel, and we were tempted in one day by the taste testing being offered....

What to buy: We bought a huge bag of delicious Biscotti - which I took back to share with my workmates in London....and ended up eating most of myself as the were too good!

Also, we bought this small back of almonds covered in what looked like cocoa powder - Alex declared them the tastiest chocolate covered almonds he had ever had.

What to pay: Well, it isn't cheap, but they sell very nice quality goods.
