What else is there to do in Florence besides rockin’ out to Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses and Ozzy?
San Lorenzo Market
Take the time to visit one of the closed food markets in the center of Florence. San Lorenzo Market is the largest and oldest one. The market is actually comprised of two separate markets, an indoor market, known at the Mercato Centrale, or Central Market, home to all things food. The outdoor section that lines the surroundings streets of the large Mercato Centrale building, selling leather, clothing and many souvenirs.
Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and Brunelleschi’s Cupola
Climbing the Duomo, is one of the most breathtaking experiences you can have in the center of Florence. Wear good walking shoes: the steps to get on top are 463.
Santo Spirito square
Word is Santo Spirito is not a famous tourist spot, it’s more of a “locals” neighbourhood.
There are good local coffee places and wine bars, a local market, and some of the cheapest restaurants in town.
Ponte Vecchio is one of Florence’s landmarks and most photographed bridges in the city. Something important was built on top of them: the Vasari Corridor, a “secret” passageway.
La Specola Anatomical Collection
If you’re looking for a memorable experience that’s a bit more unusual but still historic, tour La Specola, the largest and most famous wax anatomical collection anywhere in the world. First opened to the public in 1775, La Specola is part of the Museum of Natural History in Florence and houses taxidermy, including now extinct specimens and a very questionable-looking hippopotamus.
