Every visit to Florence should include a visit to the world famous Uffizi gallery, a glimpse of Michelangel0’s statue of David, a coffee in the Piazza della Signoria and a stroll across the beautiful Ponte Vecchio bridge. However those who will be in Florence for more than one day should also explore the Oltrarno. Oltrarno?literally “across the Arno”? is the most charming neighbourhood of Florence. Traditionally the artisan’s quarter you will find plenty of artisans’ studios, antiques stores, bars, and small restaurants. The Oltrarno is also very residential – you’ll even see clothes hanging out to dry!
But the Oltrarno hasn’t always been so peaceful… on our Original Evening Walk tour you’ll hear Renaissance murder stories and learn about Michelangelo’s murky past. After exploring the Oltrarno with your guide the tour concludes with wine tasting in Florence’s most authentic wine cellar.
