The ladies love to browse. If your a guy and have no interest in browsing, wander over to the wild hog. The best part of this attraction is watching knuckleheads run the nose and take pictures. BTW, the oriinal sculpture is in the Uffizi.

Mercato Nuovo is just another one of those "exciting" markets where you walk around mindlessly for an extended period of time, either out of curiosity, or perhaps looking for a bargain, which ends up being a disaster.... You get the drift!!!

Don't seek this out but it's worth a look if you are passing nearby. Very disappointed to see that not all the goods were Italian made leather, in my opinion bags were over priced, and all the stalls were offering the same goods. I bought...More

This market located close to Piazza della Signoria is mainly just a tourist trap with each stall selling the same items with none to very small variations, bags, scarfs and other souvenirs. Look for better deals away from here.

The market is filled with carts/stalls selling leather products. Some stalls carry similar products so it's is wise the compare prices. The stall keepers are generally friendly and patient. Some bags are made from PVC so need to check carefully. Good place to shop for...More

Small ultra touristic shopping place with good prices. The market offers leather (and other) bags, scarfs and other "touristic" merchandise.

The markets aren't much to see but the main attraction is the statue of the Piglet. Everyone wants to get their photo with it so be prepared to queue. You can see the mould that it was made form in the Uffizi.
