Beyond the Arno On this side of the river is one of Florence's greatest treasures. The Oltrarno. The word beyond suits it because it is where the few real wanderers go. This tranquil side of town where music is sang in the Piazza & where wine is tasted in good company. The Oltrano is filled with stores that still practice florentine craftsmanship. Woodcarvers, sculptors, jewelers, shoemakers & artists. It is here most foreigners decide to stay here ; it is here where they fall in love.
