"Mercato Nuovo" Where to find Great Shopping Tip by Gypsystravels
Where to find Great Shopping, Florence: 17 reviews and 17 photos
Favorite thing: Despite its name the New Market has been around since 1551 and was known as the Straw Market because it sold rafia (straw) goods. Today this market sells everything from clothing, handbags, shoes and leather good, along with tourist souvernirs.
Fondest memory: It is thought that by touching the little bronze boar "Il Porcellino" it will bring good luck. So go ahead, touch away.
