When you arrive, you can lay your car in our free car park.

Guests will be introduced at the time of their arrival, with any provision of the necessary information for sightseeing and activities that can be done in this area. We are always available for advice and necessity required. The area is characterized by the particular tranquility and a pleasant climate that can be found even in the hottest periods. In the town centre you can find all the amenities and services, as well as an easy connection via bus car (ataf 7) to the city of Florence. A short walk away you can in fact find restaurants, gas station, pub, food market and so on.

Are easy to reach other tourist places really interesting as the area of the hills and vineyards of Chianti, Val d'Orcia, the various spa centers, Val di Chiana, Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Lake Trasimeno, the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Riva Etruscan and many other equally interesting and famous places in Tuscany The stream of visitors who come every day to Fiesole gave birth in the historic center and near many restaurants and accommodation. Fiesole is therefore now one of the top destinations for a stay by those who want to visit Florence and its surroundings, but also for those looking for a restaurant in a panoramic or simply want to take a walk out the door.

From Piazza San Marco in Florence, you can catch the ATAF Florence City Bus # 7 to Fiesole. Running about every half hour, the short bus ride (about 20 minutes) is an easy way to escape the throngs of tourists in Florence and spend a pleasant day here.

Although the 8 km trip can also be accomplished by car or taxi, the bus ride is effortless and hassle-free. Riding with locals and a few other day trippers through the outskirts of Florence and along the gently winding (and uphill!) road is enjoyable. There is also a double-decker sightseeing bus that goes to Fiesole Florence and Fiesole, although it can also be reached by bike or on foot, that is only advisable for the very hardy!

Fiesolan climbing up the hills, you will pass the gated and walled Renaissance villas, San Domenico (the monastery where FRA ' Angelico first took his vows and did much of his work), and you may even catch occasional glimpses of the panoramic views of Florence. You can also start to appreciate why Fiesole has been a popular sanctuary for centuries, including for the Medici family; the cool mountain breezes provide a welcome escape from the rigors of city living and heat below.

The bus stop is conveniently located in town center, Mino da Fiesole. As in so many town centers in Italy, there is a statue of Victor Emmanuel II gallantly posed on horseback. Sprinkled around the perimeter are inviting cafés, taverns and shops. This is the logical point to begin your explorations and Fiesole is quite easy to explore on foot. Armed with a map (available at the tourist center) you can choose one of several walking itineraries, all of which conveniently begin and end in Piazza Mino.

Following the route along Via delle Etruscan walls, will take you uphill (and I do mean up ...) until you reach a vantage point with a breathtaking view of Florence. After you catch your breath (literally!), take in the dazzling views of the valley below, including the Duomo and rooftops of Florence. Depending on your time and energy, you can continue on and follow this route around the entire circumference of the city or head back. In either case you will end up back at Piazza Mino.

The Roman Baths-originally they covered 4500 square meters and were divided into an internal and external area Fiesole has Etruscan roots dating back to the 8th-9th century BC and can even claim to be older than Florence. Over the centuries, with its hilltop location, as well as being situated along major traveled routes and its proximity to the River, it has experienced a long history of being settled, conquered and restored.

Around the 1st century BC, the Romans arrived and characteristically constructed baths and an amphitheater which we can visit today. Built into natural rock, the amphitheater has been restored over the years and is still used for special events. Pausing to enjoy the view of the lush green rolling hills, it's easy to understand why the Romans chose this location for their relaxation and entertainment.

There's a small café at the entrance and your ticket also includes admission to the small but quite interesting Civic Archeological Museum which is also on the archeological site (be sure to see the interesting exhibit about the Lombards including a reconstruction of a Lombard tomb).

Fiesole is small enough that you can easily explore its sites at a comfortable pace. Since many of the sites (e.g., museums and cathedrals) have limited visiting days/hours, you may want to check their schedules to avoid being disappointed. For example, if visiting the privately owned Villa Doctors is on your list (as it was on mine), only the gardens can be visited only by appointment on weekdays. Other villas are open on a rotating schedule.

In any case, you will certainly want to consider having a leisurely lunch or dinner on the Square while enjoying the stunning view of Florence before heading back. Since it's downhill, perhaps you'll consider a leisurely walk back to Florence? Or, you can catch the same bus (# 7) that dropped you off and be back in Florence in time for an aperitif or a gelato!

Other points of interest include: The Bandini Museum, Renaissance Villas and Gardens, San Romolo Cathedral in Piazza Mino, San Francesco church and convent.
