Antique and art lovers will enjoy spending a few hours on Via Maggio. It is home to many of the finest dealers and artists in all of Italy, and features many beautiful things such as delicate china figures, large marble statues, Renaissance paintings done on wood, and baroque tapestries. This is the area where all the great hearts and minds of the Italian Renaissance flourished.

Gallo-Turchi is made up of large showrooms that specialize in wood paintings, furniture, ceramic pieces, swords and lances, dating between the 16th and 18th centuries. Very close by is Guido Bartolozzi Antichità, a family-owned store that collect items from the 16th-19th century such as impeccable stone tabletop, wooden dressers and tapestries.
