Florence is famous for the quality of its food, from specialty stores to local markets and supermarkets.
While studying in the city, we recommend that you fully enjoy the experience of shopping at a typical local market such as the San Lorenzo Market (the ground floor is an old-school market, while the first floor has been revamped with a modern vibe) or the Sant’Ambrogio Market. At these markets, you’ll find a superb selection of local produce, such as vegetables, fruit, meat, dairy products and baked goods. It’s where you’ll find the best ingredients to put into practice the recipes you’ll learn in Italian cookery lessons.
