Up a huge hill from Florence, it was a stop on the Hop on Hop off City Sightseeing Bus. We were impressed with this intact roman theater until we went to Ostia Antica outside Rome. Worth the trip, although we went later in the day and had a rushed visit. Nice small museum about with the interesting history of the... More

Just above Florence in this little town you will find an old Roman Theatre. It's quite a site and preserved enough to really imagine how much fun the people had gathering in such a place. Not long lines at all and the museum is peaceful with elevators.

I spent a blissful summer in Fiesole when I was in college at La Badia Fiesolana. One of our favorite things to do was to go up to Fiesole and see a performance at the Roman Theater. We saw so many wonderful performances there. When I visited Fiesole again after a very long absence, I was thrilled to see there... More

We weren't touring Rome, so we ventured here. It is a great archaeological gem. You can actually walk/climb through the ruins and try to visualize the area. Amphitheater was great except it seems they were setting up for a real concert there?! If you like ruins and you are not going to Rome, then it is worth the visit.

The site is right in Fiesole and is easily accessible for everyone, including families with children and seniors. The theater can be viewed from many angles. Those with more energy can stroll the rest of the site. The museum is compact and contains a number of very interesting exhibits and artifacts.

A great place to spend a couple of hours relaxing. There are wonderfully preserved Roman ruins along with the Roman amphitheater. A great place for history exploring. Lovely views across the Tuscan countryside can also be had here. During the summer there are theatre/dance presentations in the evenings.

Visited the place with my son, and neither of us are history/archaeology buffs but do have interest. The archaeological area is relatively small, which is great on a sunny day as the heat can be unbearable. Amazing that in that one small area are finds belonging to the Etruscans, Romans and the Lombards. The museum is small but has alot... More

Parking is on the street paid parking. There is an opportunity at the ticket office to do several combinations of sites. For those with mobility issues there are "handicap" elevators from street level to theatre and museum. The bookstore in the museum sells guides to the archeological cite for 2,50€. There are ones in English, French, German, and Italian. Each... More

Visiting Fiesole was one of the highlights in the Tuscany trip, especially on a drizzling day. It was a small hill station, with lots of greenery, and the archaeological site was an interesting visit. I did not visit the museum, due to lack of time. It costs 7 euros to visit just the site. Accessibility is easier by bus from... More
