  • is something hidden up are several stalls which sell things of leather, are rather expensive because it is leather natural sell good, how non-traditional things, but things that you can use on a daily basis and are nice

  • Not that exciting. It's more of a tourist trap. You are instantly overwhelmed by nearby tourist shops sell cheap products. Wouldn't go out of my way again to see this.
  • The fountain is nice, located next to an open air market. Nice to go at night when it I is less crowded.
  • Mettete una monetina nella bocca del porcellino e lasciatela cadere nel pozzo. Assaggiate anche il panino con lampredotto vicino alla fontanina. Da urlo!
  • Just a fountain with golden pig nose. Not far from the duomo. The market behind it is a great place to wander for a while
  • Rub that the boar's nose if you want to come back to Firenze
