The street markets around San Lorenzo in Florence are popular with tourists for lots of reasons. It is possible to buy all kinds of souvenirs from colourful stalls that wind through the streets. Most stalls are in Via dell’Ariento where you will also find the wonderful Central Food Market.
There are leather jackets, handbags, wallets, belts, key rings, clothes, scarves and paper goods…among other things. The stalls are often fronts for the shops behind them.
If you like to bargain you will probably have fun here. It is a great place to find gifts to take home…you are bound to find something you like.
Voting in the Italy Magazine Blog Awards closes on 28th February. If you haven’t already voted (even if you have…it seems you can vote as many times as you like) I would love it if you click here and vote for Bagni di Lucca and Beyond in the Best single Art and Culture Post.
Winners will be announced 3rd March. I will let you know as soon as I do.
