Meet the Artisans | Weekend in Italy

Experience one of the most lively and unique aspects of Florence: take a look behind the scenes of the Florentine artisanal tradition, and see the masters at work!

Since medieval times, Florence has been a city of "botteghe," small artisan workshops. This tradition continues today especially on the left bank of the Arno River in what Florentines call the “artisans’ quarter.”

The tour is a relaxed walk along the narrow streets of the Oltrarno District, the less crowded and less visited side of the historic center of Florence. Our expert guide will take you along the streets filled with boutique artisan bottegas, where you will stop and watch the experts working on their unique masterpieces. Silver and gold, perfumes, leather… let all your senses be stimulated as you enter the fascinating world of the Florentine master artisans at work.
