Florence and its Ancient Arts and Crafts

Santa Croce church

Florence has been home to guilds and workshops since the Middle Ages and still today, visitors can discover the work of artisans and craftsmen who have been producing fascinating handmade arts and crafts for generations and generations.

Inlay picture frames, marbled paper, jewelry, and other quality handcrafts are the incredible result of a heritage based on tradition which continues to thrive just steps away from the Arno River in the historical center.

We would like to show you the soul of Oltrarno, a neighborhood full of bottegas (workshops, studios) set among palazzos, Renaissance churches, and a maze of narrow streets.

Length of tour: approximately 3 hours.
