Oltrarno | The Other Side of Florence


The “other” side of the Arno River, affectionately called the “Diladdarno” by the Florentines for eons. It’s a touch scruffier on this side, though, decidedly younger and weirder, so if you’re tiring of the Renaissance browns and reds immediately surrounding the Duomo, I trust that you’ll find an extra splash of color over here.
