On the outside, very cheap souvenirs at WAY better prices- however some of the stuff appeared second hand. The “new clothing” items were rather expensive for the quality. The vegetables and fruits were nice. There was a lovely bakery/cafe inside with great food. It was...More

We love this market, and suggest going during the morning hours and during the weekday. You really can't go wrong with any of the selections. We like the sbriciolona and proscuitto di parma from the butcher with the Boar's head. Make your own sandwich with...More

If you enjoy visiting markets with fresh produce this is definitely woth a visit. It is not very large, but a good display/selection of fruit and vegetables. Some fish stalls inside, but mostly meat. Outside there are also quite a few stalls offering clothes, shoes...More

Went with friends to buy provisions for our rental villa. Fantastic selection of meat, fruit ,veg and pasta. Spoilt for choice and such good value. Even if you don't want to buy anything worth a trip!

We went today and were kinda let down. Went to the bustling central market, and loved it. Lots of stalls closed and most places open were selling raw produce, more eating and drinking options at central market with a more accessible feel to it.

Lots of great things to eat here, and the proportion of locals is higher. Mercato Centrale is great to see, but San'Ambrigo is an escape from the craziness of Centrale. Also the vendor service is more friendly. There is a bit of seating, and you...More

Our Airbnb landlady recommended that we visit this market that is off the beaten tourist track, yet not too much of a detour from the tourist centre. It was definitely worth the visit; a covered meat and fish market and fruit and veg stalls outside...More

Great local market to hangout and eat like a local and buy local fresh food. If we had a self catering it would be the place to go. I've never seen such fresh produce!

There are two types of voyagers. The tourists and the the travelers. If you think you’re in the first category, then don’t go to mercato Di sant ambrogio. It’s not for you. If you consider yourself as a traveler and you’d like to find out...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
