Alternatively known as the “New” Market or the Straw Market, this handsome little loggia now shelters stalls stuffed with affordable souvenirs and trinkets, and aimed exclusively at tourists. Pay a visit if only to see the “Porcellino,” a small bronze boar cast in the 1600s by Pietro Tacca. Rub his nose and the legend says you will return to Florence. It runs daily.
