The market has some good fresh produce, especially fruit and veg, however the stall are all very similar so it is worth shopping around for the best price.

- A little off the beaten track, plenty of locals shopping and eating here - Not many English speaking vendors, bring your phrasebook - Butchers, fishmongers, delis, fruit and veg, couple of small restaurants and take away food outlets. - Plenty of excellent produce

Great local produce, food (sandwiches or a sit-down at the trattoria onsite) and a flea market around the corner, this place is a must visit for local flavors.

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

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

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.
