Attractions near the Botticelli
Don't miss the markets
Just steps from the hotel, you'll find Florence's popular and bustling San Lorenzo market. The largest open-air street market in the city, San Lorenzo is the place to go to pick up beautiful Italian leather bags, belts, shoes and souvenirs.
Haggling is commonplace at this lively market and vendors try their luck marking up the prices for tourists, but you're often able to pick up goods for about half the asking price. Visit the Mercato Centrale food markets, which make up part of the San Lorenzo markets, and browse the local foods and Italian delicacies.
Even if you're not especially knowledgeable in art history, you'll probably recognise the marble statue of David, which is very significant in Florence. Created by Florence's Renaissance king, Michelangelo, between 1501 and 1504, the much-loved statue of the biblical hero David symbolises the defence of liberty in the Florentine Republic.
David originally sat in the Piazza Della Signoria outside the Palazzo del Signoria, Florence's seat of power, until it was moved in 1893 to the Academia Gallery, where it can still be visited today. A replica David now sits in the statue's original position in the public square, and throughout Florence you can find lots of David souvenirs.
