Walking tour in Florence to discover the Oltrarno and its artisans
An exciting tour in the streets and artisan shops of one of the most typical districts of Florence

A unique off-the-beaten-track walking tour of the charming Florence Oltrarno district, to discover the local workshops and the amazing Santo Spirito Church with Michelangelo's unmissable wooden sculpture! 

A short distance away from the impressive Piazza Pitti, you will visit some of the extraordinary workshops to admire local artisans at work, producing marvelous traditional handicrafts such as engravings, art prints, marble paper, enamel and silver objects.

Led by your expert guide, you will also reach the charming Piazza Santo Spirito, with its typical family restaurants, small shops and artists’ studios.
Here you will be able to visit the beautiful Santo Spirito church designed by Brunelleschi and the last masterpiece of the great Artist. 
Inside you'll visit the wonderful Santo Spirito Monumental complex: cloister, refectory, chapter house and sacristy, where you'll find the only existing wooden sculpture of Michelangelo, a crucifix that he carved at the age of 17!

To complete this unforgettable experience, your guide will bring you inside a sculpture workshop* to admire the impressive collection of models, molds and replicas of classical art.


In case the visit of the Atelier is not available, it will be replaced with the visit of an additional Florentine Artisan Workshop. Please note that order of the visits may change.  

The facilities have been entirely sanitized and the visits will be carried out in compliance with the regulations stated by the health emergency.
