Less well known than the Mercato San Lorenzo, this institution has both inside and outside stalls. Inside you can find meats, cheeses, fish, salumi, bread and some stalls where you can enjoy a hearty meal (Da Rocco will provide an excellent experience). Outside are fruit...More

Local market featuring fresh meats, vegetables and some clothing. It’s orientated to service the local demand, and not really the foodie inclined tourist. Note however, you can buy some really good cheeses, olives, meats, etc – but it’s more of a “stop-and-shop” rather than an...More

Without being overly critical, there is an ongoing market and as flea markets go, one can get decent buys there. Not really a touristy place, but good for finding things you may reuquire or may have forgotten to purchase. Better "flea" market items at the...More

It is supposed to be a market that you can find good bargains –food, clothing! At the indoor section you can buy fish, meat or cheese while outside there is everything from bags of beads to string at very low price, but also second-hand clothes...More

This area is a little removed from the main attractions. We came here from Piazzale Michelangelo by bus. The bus took forever to come. But even with the longer travel times, it was a wonderful visit for us. We got a glimpse of the local...More

Mercato Centrale has its draw and I gave it 5/5 in my other review. But if you're looking to get away from the crowd, where locals do their shopping, Sant'Ambrogio is your spot. It's east of most of the hustle and bustle, not far from...More

The Central Market is glitzy and glamorous. But, if you are shopping for food to prepare yourself and you want to shop where the locals shop you have got to check out the Sant' Ambrogio Mercato. Open from 7 am to 3 pm, it is...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
