What travelers say:

In the central square market of Florence, this statue is very delicate. People passing by here like to touch its nose, so the nose is very shiny. I really didn't pay attention to the specific story, so I took it when I looked cute.

    Put a coin into the pigs mouth and if it falls into the grid you will have good luck forever, if not - who knows.

    Touristy Think

    Even though it is touristy, you have to rub his nose. Easy to find but nothing exciting. I was glad I did it.
