Spending Time in The Oltrarno

Once considered the unfashionable side of the Arno River, today Florence's Oltrarno retains a medieval air.

It is a place for wandering along empty side streets, and see artisans busy in their workshops, as they have been for centuries.

Trees and gardens are everywhere, so at times I felt as I were wandering a Tuscan hill town, not the heart of Florence.

Shops and restaurants are filled with locals, a perfect place to sit and reflect on the wonders of Florence.
