Leather Market open in December???

by curciohome

Is the Leather Market open in Flrence the month of December???

Re: Leather Market open in December???

by leics

Given that Florence is a very popular tourist destination all year round, and that the market (not just leather goods, by the way) has been in full swing whenever I have visited well out of season (February, end of October), then I am sure it will be open in December....not least for Christmas presents! :-)

I assume you meant the large market around San Lorenzo? There is also a smaller market, the Mercato Nuovo, near Piazza Della Republica. I imagine that one is open all year as well.

by Alex_71

yes the market is open all year long. The day in which it's closed usually it's on monday but during the Xmast period it's supposed to be opened anyway.
Obiusvly i'm talking about "San Lorenzo market" and the small market in "porcellino" area.
Enjoy shopping

A less crowded museum is the...

by Barbara2

A less crowded museum is the Florence Science Museum. It has very interesting exhibits on display. One is this Armillary, used to calculate the positions of the planets in Ptolemy's day. I'd seen pictures of this apparatus in my science books but was absolutely floored by the actual size. It looked so small in the textbook.

Looking for famous people's houses

by Jefie

It goes without saying that a city of such historical and cultural importance as Florence should have a long list of notable residents. One thing I enjoyed doing as we were walking around the historic centre of the city was to look for markers indicating when someone famous had lived in the house. Dante's (Via Santa Margherita, 1) and Michelangelo's (Via Ghibellina, 70) were easy to find since they now house small museums dedicated to their former residents. There were two other houses I was very happy to find on my own, and there actually is a connection between them. The first was that of English poetess Elizabeth Barrett Browning at No. 8 Piazza di San Felice, across the street from Palazzo Pitti. Elizabeth came to Italy in 1846 with her husband, the poet Robert Browning, and she lived there until her death in 1861. There's a good chance that Elizabeth Browning's famous poem "Aurora Leigh" was written while she lived in Florence, and it also seems likely that Robert Browning's poem "Andrea del Sarto" was written in that house. And this of course brings me to No. 22 Via Gino Capponi, the house where the "faultess painter" lived at the beginning of the 16th century while he was working on his frescoes at the Santissima Annunziata Basilica. It was after reading Browning's poem that I first got interested in the works of Andrea del Sarto, so to see the houses where both men lived was a nice bonus to my trip to Florence.

The Mall in Florence

by mariocibelli about I Gigli - Centro Commercaile - Sesto Fiorentino

The Gigli is a mall located about 20 minutes from the train station in the suburb of Sesto Fiorentino. It has about 100 stores and a huge Pathe multiplex cinema. The larger stores include the Panorama Hypermarket, Universo Sport (sporting goods, great store - smaller boutique style shop located next to the Duomo), Coin department store, Leroy and Merlin home store and Media Worls electronics. It comes complete with a large food court and Irish Pub.

While many might argue that you don't come to Italy to go to a mall, but I beg to differ, it is one of the few times that you wil be in a total Italian environment as all the shoppers are Italian, nice way to eacape the tourist masses in downtown Floville (Florence).

The mall is open from 0900 to 2200 from Monday to Saturday.

Pizza on a budget, away from the crowds.

by Larinka about La Pizzeria

If you can find this place with the confusing building numbers in many of Italy's streets, then you may be visiting several times. Florence has such a huge choice of places to eat, some dissappointingly poor value for money, it made a change not to feel ripped off when the final bill arrived. With great pizzas at around €7.50, or Toasts (small tomato free pizzas like exotic cheese on toasts) for around €5, and the fact that it was away from the main tourist trap so it was less crowded, we visited several times. All the pizzas looked good, but for a quick snack the Roquefort and mushroom toast with a mixed salad went down well.
