This is definetely the object I would like to buy, and old gramophone which still works. The price was around one thousand euros, but negotiale.
What to buy: The fleamarket offers lots of various stuff, I am sure you'll find something according to your preferences.
Visit Piazza San Zeno in autumn Sunday, there you'll find the huge open-air antiques market. People from the city of Verona and its surroundings, offering here various antiques, furniture, paintings, jewelry, etc.
Most of the exposed articles are of law artistic and commercial value, however, there are also the articles which deserve attention.
Stretching from the Northern edge of Piazza Bra and almost up to Piazza Erbe, Via Mazzini contains many glamorous and high priced stores: Fendi, Benneton, MaxMara, Dolce & Gabanna, and others. It is a street where people see and are seen.
Via Mazzini is the smartest of Verona's shopping streets. Here you will find the fashion shops and designer boutiques such as Gucci and Versace. During the peak shopping periods this street is packed with the smart people of Verona, so much so that you can't get a decent photo. So this picture was taken late at night, on our way back from the restaurant.
This is a street to stroll along, and to window shop. It is one of the streets that the Veronese themselves stroll, to see and be seen, especially in the early evening when it can be almost impossible to walk in a straight line for ten yards.
The city of Verona offers great schopping, in particularly designed clothing and shoes. The best shops you can find in Via Mazzini, but also in the nearby small streets around it. Let me introduce which trade-marks you can find here: Pollini, Rossetti, and Principe for shoes, Gucci, Max Mara, Ralph Lauren, Luisa Spagnoli, Ferre, Armani, Versace for cloths and lot more.
What to buy: To those who don't care how much it costs, any time of the year is convinient. However, most of the visitors care for the prices. In all shops you can burgain the prices but you need a very good skill to obtain it.
The proper time to get a good price for clothing or shoes is a low season; second half of Avgust and first half of September for summer collection, and Xmas time and the beginning of January for the winter collection.
What to pay: Less as possible, always burgain the prices, you can do it and the sellers are expecting that.
Just a little stall, with wrapped 'rocks', and a TV with videocassette playing...kind of like an info-commercial.
What to buy: They sold these 'rocks' to be used in place of deodorant. They are actually chunks of potassium crystal, which is natures natural anti-bacteria agent.
I had just read something about these rocks on the net, so they caught my eye. Normally I would have walked right by.
All you do is moisten the rock, and rub the damp surface in places you wish to be fresh and sweet.
IT WORKS....I couldn't believe it. I am so looking forward to proving it to all my friends.
What to pay: 5 Euro, for a chunk of rock. Remember, it really, really WORKS.
July 11/2005 - Have been using daily since my purchase, and am amazed at how well this 'ROCK' works. I am as fresh as a spring rain!!!
In the center of this small city there is a great fleamarket. They sell everything from clothes, to candles, to table settings.
It's all very cheap, unlike the rest of the the shops in the city.
The market is also close to a bunch of restaurants, so when you are tired from shopping you can grab a bite to eat.
What to buy: Anything
What to pay: Between 10 and 50 Euros
There's a few small market stalls in Piazza Erbe that sell everything from herb-flavoured roast suckling pig in bread rolls to clothes and accessories.
These souvenir stalls exploit fully the love story of Romeo and Juliet - plenty to buy, if you're a sucker for that story.
Via Mazzini (pedestrian zone) is the favourite shopping street of both locals and tourists. You'll find every kind of shops.
