  • Many people, beautiful architecture, in the heart of the old town of Florence. Creates a mood. A pleasant stroll.

  • Also touched noses of pigs come to Florence with the legend, and then visited the market for leather products. Colorful colors in Japan don't bag or pouch, many gloves. The price was negotiable. Fiends and inferior ones, and many people were so much fun!

  • It is a small market where you can buy things made in leather. It has a sculpture of a wild boar which custom is to rub his nose since it brings good luck. It is located between the Ponte vecchio and the duomo square.

  • Although I was not a fan of Lampredotto itself (I'm sorry, I tried so hard to enjoy Tripe!) the service was friendly and ALL the locals I spoke to recommended this place for food (specifically the one beside Porcellino they told me!) I could appreciate why and enjoyed the experience but it was enough for me to learn that Lampredotto wasn't my style. There is however an extensive menu with many other meals and if I was back in Florence I would be here giving some other meals a chance! Unfortunately I tried this on my last day and thus didn't have a chance to come back for more. Grazie Porcellino!
  • 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
  • There was a bunch of market stalls right here that were really fun to look through. The statue was cool as well.
