Just Florence > Florentine walks > Oltrarno


What does Oltrarno mean

Let’s find out the other side of the river Arno where small cafés and small artisanal workshops are a signficant feature: narrow alleys,corners, small squares with hidden palaces once belonging to the florentine  nobility and bourgiosie.

Santo Spirito, Santa Maria del  Carmine,  Pitti Palace  and finally  Costa San Giorgio, heading Galileo’s residence.

Suggested for second time visitors looking for less touristy spots  : wear confortable shoes and be prepared to walk a lot !

Estimated time : about 2 hours
