We went because the name sounded exotic... but in fact it looks like a typical Southern European food market. Plenty of fruit, vegetables and local specialties if you want to eat for cheap.

A fairly good food market with several vegetable, fish, cheese and meat shops. Everything is beautifully presented. Even if you do not plan to buy anything, it's fun to just watch the locals shopping.

All the tables have a beautiful display. Every type and style of Italian food is here. It's for the people of the city and this gives it a real look.

We were led to believe the building was fabulous. But it was just a market. We love to wander round non-uk markets because they always seem better than ours. It was just a market
