53 Via Fratelli Bandiera, Colle di Val d'Elsa, 53034

Colle di Val d'Elsa's fairy tale-like Vilca studio produces some of the area's most imaginative crystal ware. Call ahead to watch craftsmen transform transparent strands of glass into twisted chalices and icy vases then go next door where the store sells everything from Charles Rennie Mackintosh vases to chunky-stemmed goblets—at prices 50 percent less than retail.
