  Mom rubbing Il Porcellino for some good luck
by Gypsystravels

Favorite thing: The leather goods here are of top quality. Bargin the merchants for your desired article (make sure to pay by cash). Credit cards are accepted by many of the merchants, but you will get a better deal if you pay by cash.

Fondest memory: Watching my mother touch "Il Porcellino" for a bit of good luck.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
