Verken de ambachtswinkels op de Oltrarno

  • Verken de ambachtswinkels op de Oltrarno

    Ontdek het ambachtelijke erfgoed van de wijk Oltrarno op de zogenaamde ‘linkeroever’ van de stad, aan de overkant van de rivier de Arno. Deze Boheemse wijk is bezaaid met stijlvolle barretjes en bruisende herbergen afgewisseld met antiekwinkels, sieradenmakers, foto-restauratoren en bijouterie-kunstgalerieën. Een bezoek aan de eeuwenoude ‘botteghe’(ambachtswerkplaatsen) is een reis terug in de tijd. Ondanks het toerisme is dit kunstzinnige district authentiek gebleven en is het nog altijd de thuisbasis van specialistische ambachtslieden wiens beroep sinds de middeleeuwen in dit district bewaard is gebleven. Afhankelijk van je interesses kun je ambachtswinkels bezoeken die gerund worden door timmerlieden, kleermakers, prentmakers of leermakers. Dit is dé plek om te genieten van het kopen van op maat gemaakte meubelen, litho’s, beeldhouwwerken of handgemaakte lederen handtassen. Ga zelf op pad (zie meer tips in Winkelen) of neem een Oltrarno-ambachtstoer met Eating Italy. Hun tour neemt je ook mee naar plekken voor proeverijen van Toscaans vlees, kazen en Cantucci-koekjes. Zie ook Winkelen voor specifieke tips.
