How wonderful to find a traditional market square which was a bustling, thriving centre selling fresh fruit and vegetables. No transit vans or noisy generators here ... just simple covered market stalls selling high quality local produce and attracting good custom. Turn the clock back and this would be a scene from yesteryear! The smell, sound and local community engaging together was a delight, and exploring Pistoia was to reveal some stunning architecture and wonderful hidden surprises. Lots to see here and not as busy as many of the popular tourist destination in Tuscany.

The square is the heart of the city, with many bars and restaurants around it. It is also the location of the open-air market with fruits and vegetable stalls and twice a week it hosts the huge central market. But it is colorful and lively during the whole day, either for a morning coffee, nice lunch or evening glass of vine, this is the place to be!

We traveled here by taxi and walked all around. Most striking were the numerous vegetable and fruit markets there were also. many butcher shops and a great fish cart. All you could ever want in one place. All fresh fruit of which we bought. Peaches and plumbs back to our hotel

Lovely square and town in general, huge market on Wednesday and Saturday that takes over the whole town. Well worth a look, selling whole range of goods.

The place to be seen in to drink in and to eat in - the BIZ centre of Pistoia. Busy most nights but absolutely packed on Fridays and Saturdays - late late late
