Florence is famous for its shopping, mainly leather goods and food. If you’re in the market for a new bag, pair of gloves, coat, wallet, belt or shoes, this is the place to be. To get the bargains, head over to the San Lorenzo Market.

It’s not difficult to find; it lines the streets around the San Lorenzo Church and Medici Chapel. There is stall after stall of leather goods, hats, souvenirs and paper goods. And the service makes for half the fun. You’ll quickly get used to every stallholder trying to engage you in conversation – they’re not shy these flirty salesmen – and you have to remember that this is half the game. It’s a performance, and a sales technique.
