Magic Oltrarno!!! Hearth of Florence.
Florence’s Oltrarno district is known for its artisans—"artigiani" in Italian—a dying breed of creative hands that carry on centuries' worth of Florentine traditions. From bookbinders to sculptors to metalworkers and gold-gilders, the little maze of streets between the Ponte Vecchio and Santo Spirito are quietly off the beaten track, overlooked by most visitors.
It’s a wonderful neighborhood to explore and get a peek into another era. Some of these workshops look like something straight out of the Renaissance. While you are here, visit some of the great little cafes in the area. Also in this neighborhood are the Pitti Palace’s beautiful galleries—a visit here would complement this artisan trail that looks at the decorative arts in Florence.
