HomeVideoMonuments&MuseumsStrolling the Oltrarno Neighborhood. By Rick Steves

There's much more to Florence than the touristy zone north of the Arno River. To discover rustic, old Florence cross the river and dive into the colorful Oltrarno district. Wander the back lanes and you'll find artisans practicing centuries-old crafts like picture framing, violin making and more. Finish your day at a Florentine steakhouse, which as any meat lover knows means sampling the tender, local Chianina beef, which goes well with a glass of Chianti.
