Strolling Florence’s Oltrarno Neighborhood

There's much more to Florence than the touristy zone north of the Arno River. Join Rick on a tour of the colorful Oltrarno district and discover rustic, old Florence. 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.
