San Lorenzo & San Marco

View on the map

Two cosy working-class neighbourhoods you should definitely visit if you like market, street food, art and a lively student atmosphere.

Crazy about street food, beautiful architecture and art and love a cosy atmosphere? Then this is the place for you. San Lorenzo is best known for its markets and San Marco precisely for the "home" of Michelangelo's David. The San Lorenzo district is always mentioned when the Florentine mentions the market. The large market hall, with an authentic market on the ground floor and a veritable street food hall above, is an attraction in itself. The student district of San Marco is home to one of the most important faculties of the University of Florence: the Faculty of Architecture, located in the famous Galleria dell'Accademia. No shortage of nice cafés and restaurants
