Fiorentino is historically and also today one of the most
famous centres of painted majolica and ceramics production in
Tuscany, and is within easy reach of Florence. Montelupo the town itself is
of moderate interest but it has an excellent
museum and a
number of factories and shops selling beautiful painted Tuscan
chinaware, many of the designs instantly recognisable as being in
the Montelupo Fiorentino style.
Worth a visit.
