Shoppinig Safari - OMG Florence

Our Italian Shopping Safari is an exciting way of seeing the ‘real Italy’ and visit a variety of different stores, private ateliers, factories and much more that are off the beaten path and behind closed doors. We have the keys to open these doors and bring you with us.

For this adventure, OMG Florence is partnering with the best of the best in town, Barbara from Beyond Florence. Together we have designed the Italian Shopping Safari, undoubtedly the best Shopping Experience in Italy.

We partner with master artisans, designers, store owners, local friends, hoteliers, and top restaurants to create this long-week-event that will immerse you in the world where the products you’re going to buy are made and really understand what’s behind “Made in Italy”. Get to know the processes, the stories that make Italian products unique and the tradition that passes from one generation to the next. We have the field experience and good relationships with artisans, designers, and the best local business to offer you the best that Florence and other Tuscan cities have to offer.

We partner with this list of three different beautiful hotels that we recommend you stay in. All three hotels are located close to our daily meeting points and offer exquisite accommodations. If you choose to book a room at one of these chosen hotels we will send you a discount code to use during booking.

Palazzo Del Moro

The Palazzo Del Moro is both chic and elegant offering guests all the accommodations necessary for an unforgettable week in Florence. The textured, designer rooms greatly reflect the mood of our Shopping Safari. You will choose one of five luxury suites, each with a unique feel. The location is perfect as well. It is only a 10 minute walk from the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Forio, and it very close to the Shopping Safari meeting points throughout the week.

Camila Cepeda, Founder & Experience Designer of OMG Florence

Creating experience is creating enrichment, which requires finding the highest quality shops, products, and services as well as an in-depth understanding of the clients’ needs and aspirations. I design tailor-made lifestyle experiences in order to let you have the best time in Florence and Tuscany, my home and the territory I know best.

My international background and experience in marketing and advertising helps me to seek out the finest products. I work closely with artisans, store owners, designers and hoteliers to communicate their ideas most genuinely and truthfully and to bring my clients in contact with the world that is usually hidden away to most behind closed doors. I open those doors to create experiences for my clients that are unforgettable and one-of-a-kind.
