We have already told you about the ‘new’ Mercato Centrale and all its wonderful features. What we haven’t told you yet is that Florence’s streets has much more to offer when it comes to markets. One of the most agreeable things to do in Florence is to take a walk around town and explore these extraordinary street markets. Now we are going to recommend you Four of the best in which you can find everything you need and more. Warning: Don’t let your head go with the shopping!
Il Mercato di San Lorenzo: Perhaps the most important in town. Close to La Basilica di San Lorenzo, in the heart of the city, it is an endless source of souvenirs! Opening from Tuesday to Saturday
Il Mercatino Antiquario: Located at the beautiful Fortezza Da Basso and opening each third weekend of the month, it is one of the jewels of Florence. Just having a walk to see all the nice period objects is worth it… and do not forget to have a panino al lampredotto!
Sant’Ambrogio: When hunger appears, we cannot avoid it! Especially when we have been walking a lot and we need to recharge the batteries. Il Mercato di Sant’Ambrogio, located between Piazza Ghiberti and Piazza Sant’Ambrogio, offers the highest quality food and includes its own restaurant
Mercato Delle Cascine: Every Tuesday morning, at il Parco delle Cascine, you can find everything in it, from the finest cheese to the most elegant antiques. A true must!
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Come and see them for yourself!
