Roll a coin down his snout and you'll return
Fondest memory: Master Pietro Tacca originally sculpted this bronze boar, located in front of the Mercato Nuovo, in the early 17th century.
It is said that rolling a coin down its snout into the fountain brings good luck, and that whoever does so will not fail to return to Florence one day.
walk, walk and walk some more...
Favorite thing: walk, walk and walk some more - bronze boar 'Il Porcellino' in the Mercato Nuovo. Good place to shop for leather goods, lace and tapestries
Fondest memory: ing awestruck at the magnificence of Ghiberti's doors
