A decent selection of goods, some stalls have similar goods and some stalls have bags of lesser quality. Inspect the bags, not only the leather but the clasps and construction, and be prepared to haggle. You can usually at least get some smaller leather souvenirs...More
Whilst the locals know him as a piglet in reality it is wild boar and all part of the folk law and history of the area. Rub his nose for luck. It’s is a bit of fun next to a leather market. Remember to negotiate...More
Not far from the Ponte Vecchio on the corner of Via Porta Rossa & Via Por Santa Maria Calimala, is the New Market. This arcade with its wide Renaissance-style arches, was built halfway through the 16th century to accommodate the silk and precious objects trade....More
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.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the
Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
