Every tourist metropolis must have an area where tourists can relax from each other. These are the XII and XV arrondissements in Paris or Sarria in Barcelona. Trastevere was like that in Rome, but perhaps it was in the days of Gregory peck and Audrey Hepburn. The meaning of the Oltrarno means the same as Trastevere in Rome: "Beyond the Arno". A small commercial port was here in the middle ages and therefore small artisans settled here. After the construction of the Pitti Palace and the Boboli gardens, villas began to be built here, but the Western part of Oltrarno continued to be a working suburb. There are still no expensive hotels and restaurants here, so you can relax and stay cheap. And the reward will be enchanting views of the beauty of Florence.

This neighborhood, south of the Arno is home to a few attractions and can be very less crowded than other districts. It is loaded with craft shops, restaurants and peaceful piazzas. This neighborhood is ideal for just wandering back streets and alleys. It is also home to the Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and Santo Spirito Basilica.

Oltrarno is where the true Florence still exists with actual Florentines and artisan shops. Great eateries too!

Crossing the Arno River via the Ponte Vecchio or the Ponte Santa Trinita, one gets to the other side. Maybe because I was there on a Sunday morning, it had a more deserted feeling than the historic part of Florence. Some of the sights such as the Palazzo Pitti and the Capella Brancacci are located in this part of town.

La Rive Gauche - I first lived in the culturally rich area of real florentines savoring the small bakeries, eateries the open markets of Santo Spirito ..The bakeries , small clubs and seeing the beautiful chiesa Del Carmine and San Felice.. Here's where the locals hang out.
