  • This is a small market, very close to the Ponte Vecchio, and it's the usual stuff for sale. But, what's lovely is the gorgeous bronze sculpture of a boar (known as Porcellino) on the river side of the...  more »
  • It is worth to visit the statue of the famous wild boar. This little market is located in the Centre of Florence and sell leather products, the market is full of employees of brazilian origin and this helps a lot to tourists from Brazil and Brazilians who work there, others (particularly Romanians) speak Portuguese language very well.

  • 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
