We went today and were kinda let down. Went to the bustling central market, and loved it. Lots of stalls closed and most places open were selling raw produce, more eating and drinking options at central market with a more accessible feel to it.
Lots of great things to eat here, and the proportion of locals is higher. Mercato Centrale is great to see, but San'Ambrigo is an escape from the craziness of Centrale. Also the vendor service is more friendly. There is a bit of seating, and you...More
Our Airbnb landlady recommended that we visit this market that is off the beaten tourist track, yet not too much of a detour from the tourist centre. It was definitely worth the visit; a covered meat and fish market and fruit and veg stalls outside...More

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.
