San Lorenzo Mercato Centrale di Firenze
This is a wonderful food market, you can buy everything from amazing cheese (which they can vacuum pack to travel) to organic local produce. Well worth a visit for one of the best coffees ever, but also to pick up somethings to take home as presents (or just treats for yourself). I love the truffle products and fruit.
I have never eaten Gelato as delicious as Vivoli’s. Every corner will offer you a generic type of Gelato, but take my word for it, it is well worth chasing down the true artisan versions of this delicious cold treat. Order rice pudding and wild strawberry flavour. It will blow your mind.
This shop is almost impossible to find, on the the top floor of a town house. When you finally make it. It is the most wonderful experience. You can buy or commission your own fragrances and unlike modern scent, these really deliver. I love the sweet pea fragrance.
