We visited this fountain of a boar (fontana del porcellino) last christmas. Most tourists put their coins at the tongue/mouth of the piglet and then rub the snout. It is a belief in Florence that when the coin goes directly on the hole where the water drains, well that's nice because your wish is granted.Really amusing: rub the snout and pose with the piglet.
Tips: The Loggia del Mercato Nuovo where the piglet can be found is too crowded during the day and at the same time a leather market. So it is more applicable to visit at night where less crowds and all the leather stalls are cleared.
