Support Locals on our Traditional Artisans Tour

Florentine craftsmen have produced handmade goods for generations of kings and queens, princes and noblewomen and continue to this day, mostly in the area known as the Oltrarno ("on the other side of the Arno"). Explore this area and it's "Made in Italy" tradition with our local expert. A portion of your booking fee for this walk is donated to the Context Foundation for Sustainable Travel which, among other things, supports an apprenticeship program for the artisans of the Oltrarno.
