Florence
Many of the best Florentine artisans and craftspeople are located in out-of-the-way or hard-to-find ateliers in the Oltrarno district—on the left bank of the Arno—and most of them do not speak English. Art Viva!, an organization coordinated by the expatriate Australian Rose Magers, offers private tours of the area's workshops with guides who are not simply bilingual but also students of the various arts and crafts to be found there. Tours: $18-$250. Tel/fax 39-055-234-6225; Web site: www.artviva.com.
