Enjoy "my morning style" like a true local wandering around the artsy boho-chic district of Santo Spirito and San Frediano on the other side of the river! Stroll throught the morning open air market stalls coloured of seasonal vegetables, fruits and flowers to search for the daily bargain. We'll be welcomed by two artists in their hidden workshop of jewels and sculptures, meet few special artisans who are in love about vintage objects, upholstery fabrics and wood and discover those historical "botteghe" of home decor, bronzesmith and antiques. On our way along its narrow streets we will be delighted by the smell of freshly baked treats in one of the few bakery left with original oven on site. Finally we'll toast our morning with an Italian style aperitivo in the "cantina" of the oldest food store in town. This is the experience for those travelers who would like to discover what "Florence's coolest neighborhoods" really means !

We'll start the day off right at a typical cafe' which was a former wood carpenter workhop then, according to the weather, browse the local market square and take in its sounds and smells. Along secluded streets, we will visit artisan workshops of handcrafted jewelry, sculptures and wood decors.
