Whether you are looking to add to the collection of vinyl you have back home or pick up a few “dischi” or records by your favourite artist, Florence has a healthy assortment of shops selling new and used albums. One euro deals have almost had their day, but like most cities it still offers up an occasional good find if you know what you are looking for and where to go. Didn’t find that rare Kraftwork or reissued James Brown LP? Don’t despair! With many of Florence’s record shops nestled in some of the city’s most inspiring neighbourhoods I can at least guarantee you will have an amazing time looking.

Zurich’s relaxed licensing laws allow many clubs to stay open until the early hours of the morning, and the wide range of clubs and bars in the city centre guarantee that you can listen to live music almost every day of the week. There are several jazz clubs in the city, and bars and clubs offer gigs by local and international bands.
