In this video, International Living European editor, Steenie Harvey visits the antiques market in Florence, Italy, which takes place on the last Sunday of each month. The venue is Piazza de’Ciompi and the surrounding streets.
But here’s a tip: To those in the know, Italy’s best antiques market is in Arezzo, located about 30 minutes from Florence. On the first Sunday of every month and the preceding Saturday, Arezzo’s old town streets are closed to traffic and transformed into a great outdoor bazaar/antique fair for both professional and amateur shoppers. Here you can find antiques, collectibles, new articles, or curious old miscellany from all over the world. Artwork, ceramics, apparel, accessories, jewelry, lighting, furniture…collectors’ stamps, maps, nutcrackers, dentistry and medical instruments, terracotta vases, planters…with hundreds of stands, you could spend hours here.
