I enjoyed shopping Italian leather and scarves. The prices are fair. Sometime you need to ask for a discount. I can supply myself here pretty much with nice quality leather, since I am not will to pay 300 for a brand name purse.
This is a group of amazing violinists.
I can’t imagine they would intentionally scam anyone.
The live music was phenomenal. My wife and I were mesmerized by their musical performances. We bought their CD even though I’m always leery that a studio CD won’t compare...More
There are people everywhere here trying to sell to you. They hate the word no and are unlikely to let you wander on if you show any interest in their wares. Then there’s the people looking. It can be a bit of a squash. Most...More

The arcade itself would be interesting if not stuffed with market stalls selling all kinds of leather bags, jackets etc, as well as other tourist tat. I guess they must sell things some times but it didn't look like it when I was there.

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.
