A photographer's guide to Santo Spirito, Florence

Far away from the crowds of tourists on the other side of the river, Santo Spirito, the boho-chic neighbourhood in the Oltrarno area is nothing but fascinating. The traditional narrow streets and tiny sidewalks are home to new & contemporary hot spots, making Santo Spirito cool without losing the Florentine essence. Fashion & Interiors photographer Marina Denisova took us on a whirlwind tour of the neighbourhood to discover the best places to eat, drink, shop and sleep.

here are Marina’s handpicked selections
