Just the best of Tuscan produce without the tourist hype

Great store, great range, all beautifully presented. I found the Porcini stock cubes that I'd hunted allover. Then spent half an hour just enjoying browsing. Any supermarket that... read more

Great store, great range, all beautifully presented. I found the Porcini stock cubes that I'd hunted allover. Then spent half an hour just enjoying browsing. Any supermarket that has truffles for sale at the deli counter gets my vote.

The products on offer and the way they are displayed make this a real browsing treat for anyone who likes Italian food, wine, or even cleaning products! They sell the lot. I guarantee you will buy something!

I love Pegna, I shop here for pleasure. Their selection of food is extremely accurate. They cater to the local, which is the old city dwellers, so they have localprodue, Italian produce, and a selection of European products. Solid wine and Champagne selection, High end Malts, Charcuterie, fromage selection, a bit of everything, but only top notch. If you want... More

An excellent little cafe that serves some fine prosecco and some really tasty local brioche buns filled with anchovies or truffles!

We asked the owner of the hotel to guide us to a shop selling gelatin-sugar candy, preferably in form of fruits. He recommended Pegna, which has been in business for more than 100 years. The shop has lots of specialties in all sorts of food, candy, cakes and chocolates, but also some special items for kitchen and bathroom. But they... More

Not to be missed. A great place for high quality delicacy/daily product in reasonable price. If you do not have any idea what sort of souvenir should be bought, go there and have a look for inspiration. Very close to Duomo.

It is basically a small local grocer selling high quality local and regional ingredients and foods that you can enjoy in your hotel room or prepare and eat in your apartment if you are staying...

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
