Fortezza da Basso
Located near the Congress Palace, the Forteza de Basso holds many exhibits throughout the year from fashion shows to craftsmanship workshops. To check the upcoming events, log on to www.pittimmagine.com.
San Lorenzo Market
On Piazza San Lorenzo you will find the San Lorenzo Market. This market holds what Florence is known for... leather goods! Here you will find other famous souveniers of Florence along with lots of leather products to take back home. Also, do not forget to visit the large two-story fresh food market in this area. Make sure you go early, however, because they close around 2pm.
Piazza San Marco
A great little piazza with lots of little shops and restaurants around are sure to fill your appetite and pleasures. Be careful of the traffic, however, because this round-about is busy with locals hurrying around in their cars and scooters.
