Artisanal goods in Florence has been a tradition for centuries, hand making the most refined objects for generations of noblemen and kings. Florentine leatherworkers, silversmiths, shoemakers, frame decorators continue to practice their crafts with the same methods passed down through generations.


Enjoy a stroll through the Oltrarno (“other side of the river” neighborhood), home to artisans for the last five-hundred years.


This neighborhood is virtually a labyrinth of tiny side streets with hidden workshops. You will have the opportunity to see some of these craftsmen at work; observing their meticulous practices and the tools of their trades.
