Profile: Oltrarno

Profile: Oltrarno

The name Oltrarno means “beyond the Arno," and this Florentine neighborhood has many breathtaking choices. The Palazzo Pitti is home to the Palatine Gallery, which features over 500 Renaissance paintings, including works from Titian, Perugino, Raphael, and Rubens. Attached to the palace, the Boboli Gardens awe with 11 acres of formal gardens, which have magnificent outdoor sculptures and stunning Mannerism works.

For some local tradition, the area around the Piazza di Santo Spirito pulses with artisans at work. Even if you don't buy, watch as they bind books, blow glass, prepare handmade marbled paper, and more.
