Oltrarno on Sundays during the summer

In late June, we will only be in Florence on a Saturday and Sunday, and plan to use our Sunday to explore Oltrarno. Will the artists be working on Sunday? Will the shops be open? Are 3-4 hours enough to wander the area? We are mainly interested in seeing traditional art and workshops- like gilding, textiles, marbled paper making, etc.

Thanks!

No, Sunday is no good to see inside the majority of artists' workshops and quite a few close from Saturday lunchtime onwards. It's best to do this on a weekday either between 10 - 12.30 or after 4. The Oltrarno on Sundays during summer is a great place to escape from the crowds elsewhere in the city but doesn't work for what you want to do.

Thank you for the information! Looks like I'll have to rework our schedule.
