"market" Florence Favorite Tip by lana82

Florence General: 471 reviews and 520 photos

Favorite thing: when travelling we like to check out cities markets. so we did it again in florence. we went to mercato centrale, situated in the 19th century buliding on 2 floors. its near san laurenzo church and all those stalls with leather, clothes and all sorts of things. u can enter there or on the piazza del mercato. there r all sorts of fruits and vegetables there (second floor), pastas in all shapes and colours, fresh produced pasta in fron of ur eyes, wine shops, butchers, all sorts of olives and other characteristic italian stuff. u can also grab a delicious bite there and u can taste all sorts of stuff for free :)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
