Tuesdays aren’t Monday, which is always a bonus, but they are also eventful days in Florence.
Tuesday morning means you can go to the Cascine Market, in the Cascine Park from 7am-1pm and pick up some food, clothes, fabric, a pet turtle, and underwear all in one location. I have gone the last two weeks and been able to find a lot of great deals for not very much money. I bought some gifts for people back home, and some new clothes for myself, and only spending about €20 each day.
A lot of the clothing is made in italy, so there is an added appeal and appreciation to it, making them an extra special pair of trousers, or blouse.
Tuesdays also mean that at the club,Be Bop, you can go listen to the Beatles for no charge. In reality, they are the next best thing to the original John, Paul, George and Ringo, in the form of a great cover band. They even have mop-top hair cuts and wore matching suits, and will go around before the gig and talk to you about where you are from. So, if you want to feel as if you are in the Cavern Club in 1961 then this is the place to be at 10 on Tuesday night. I’ll Twist and Shout the next two Tuesday’s myself!
