Mercato di Sant’Ambrogio

The San Lorenzo market is a bit of a tourist souk, but the Mercato di Sant’Ambrogio has an authentic, neighbourhood feel to it. Florentines come here to do their daily shopping, grab a coffee, and chew over the local politics.

Officina Profumeria Santa Maria Novella

Florence is home to the original Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, a splendid 13th-century frescoed chapel that houses one of the oldest herbal pharmacies in the world.
