laFeltrinelli Librerie

When you are in need of new literature, pay a visit to laFeltrinelli Librerie. Here you find a wide selection of books, films, music and other paraphernalia. The outdoor, wisteria-covered part of the shop is especially wonderful. If you're lucky, you can find a book reading event in this charming space.


The area around the Tower is packed with tacky souvenir shops. Ignore those and walk to Corso Italia and Borgo Stretto, the two main shopping streets in Pisa, where you will find any kind of Italian fashion shops. The cheapest brands are in Corso Italia and the most elegant boutiques lie in the medieval Borgo Stretto. Two other streets, Via Mercanti and Via dei Rigattieri, boast many excellent shops and all around the city centre you will see dealers who sell old books and paintings. If you are, even vaguely, passionate about antique trade, don't miss the Antique and Handicraft Fair, which takes place every second weekend of the month in Via Santa Maria, Piazza Felice Cavallotti, Via dei Mille, Via Corsica, Piazza dei Cavalieri and Via Ulisse Dini (not in July and August, though). Another must-see is the Mercato delle Vettovaglie, a fruit and food market on the square of the same name, with a centenary history, opened from Monday to Friday.
