It was used and continues to be used as a market where it is possible to find handicrafts products like bags, belts and leather accessories, silk objects, hats and much more. The Porcellino Lodge takes its name from the Porcellino, a bronze boar with a fountain.
Piazza della Signoria
This piazza is just like it has been for centuries with its medieval houses and its old stone pavement. You can imagine just how it has been for all the people walking here before you. The majestic Uffizi Gallery stands close and add an air of elegance to the surrounding.
The Uffizi Gallery contains one of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world. Built in 1560 by Giorgio Vasari, following the orders of Cosimo I de Medici, it had the initial purpose of housing the offices of the Florentine magistrates, as the Palazzo Vecchio was at one point too small.
Definitely the most photographed site in Florence, Ponte Vecchio is full of jewelry shops and was also the set of many movies. Listen to the story of how it survived the Germans and the Flood of Florence in 1966.
Palazzo Pitti is a Renaissance palace that was originally the urban residence of Luca Pitti, a Florentine banker. In 1549 it was bought by Leonor de Toledo, the Duchess and wife of Cosimo I de Médici, and it became the official residence of the grand dukes of Tuscany.
In the 19th century, the palace was used as a military base by Napoleon I and then served for a short period as the official residence of the Kings of Italy.
