"A thing to do for coming back" Il Porcellino Tip by Alex_71

Il Porcellino, Florence: 14 reviews and 21 photos


The Porcellino's area is a place to visit 'couse it's in the center of the city and you can also find a little merchant area that is ever interesting(pay attentin to gipsy).You have to touch the nose of the "porcellino".The legend says that it'll give you good luck.Another thing to do is to put a coin directly in the mouth of the porcellino,and think to a desire;when the coin falls down,if it enters in the gate,your desire will happen.It's not so easy but here in Florence nothing is easy at all;-)
