Buying Items for a Picnic Lunch in Florence

jepitcairn | Sep 5, 2011 01:26 PM

My wife and I take a late-morning train from Florence to Rome during an upcoming trip to Italy. I thought that earlier that morning I'd pick up pannini, fruit, water, etc., for an onboard picnic, with 'ino being the spot I'd chosen to make these purchases. I've just discovered, however, that 'ino doesn't open until 11:00am each morning, too late for our purposes. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to where else we might find quality picnic items in Florence near our hotel (at the River Arno end of Via Tornabuoni). With thanks, John.
