S. Frediano The San Frediano neighbourhood is in the Oltrarno quarter on the left bank of the River Arno, home to the Palazzo Pitti, Cappella Brancacci, Ponte Vecchio and the monumental Boboli Gardens, amongst others, all examples of the city’ glorious historical and artistic achievements. The neighbourhood’s narrow streets boast a wide variety of different workshops where traditional manufacturing techniques are still used, as well as bars, restaurants and shops that give off an atmosphere of years gone by. In this neighbourhood of small shops and businesses, you can find stately mansions alongside modest houses, and small family restaurants next to refined temples to international cuisine. At night the streets are thronged by tourists and locals, creating a lively atmosphere. Don’t miss the magical Ponte Vecchio with its lovely jewelleries or the stunning sunsets from the Ponte Santa Trinita!
