Cheap hotels near Mercato Centrale in Florence, Italy
Within close proximity of the University of Florence, the Mercato Centrale is an ample, mostly indoor food market. It’s located in Piazza Mercato in the San Lorenzo neighborhood and within the same complex as another famous city market, Mercato di San Lorenzo (known for its high-quality leather goods and a peppering of vintage clothing).
Food purveyors at the Mercato Centrale sell everything from olive oil to produce and homemade sausage and pasta. You’ll find cheese, fish and meat on the first floor of the market, and flowers and produce upstairs. And, if you fancy a bit of cow stomach or some wild boar, you’ll probably find that here, too.
