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

The surly ticket seller could have been more helpful in explaining there is both a site and a museum. Probably my fault but my ticket only provided access to the Archaeological site. It was interesting if limited but the views were sumptuous.

fiesole is a small village above Florence, you can get there by bus from Florence or drive yourself. You will find a fabulous view of Florence from a viewing point in the town or from one of the restaurants close to the town square. You will also find a small museum, just off the main square, with very interesting Ancient... More

The walk around the theater and baths was pleasant and quite interesting. The Civic Museum was interesting as well, although somewhat small with limited opportunities to ask questions. Overll, well worth the experience.

First of all, no, this is not Rome or Pompeii. As far as I know, there is only one Pompeii, so nothing would ever compare to that. And comparing the modest ruins in a small city on a hillside to the capital city of Italy is just silly. Rome is, after all, the Eternal City and birthplace of the Roman... More

Worth a trip - take bus route 5 from place St Marco to end of line - visit the museum - you must find the ticket office, which is not at the entrance. Wonderful views. Then take a walk into Fiesole and have a panoramic view of Florence which is breath taking (and not only because of the walk!).

Great small Roman site, consisting of a theatre, temple and small museum. Great view over the nearby hills from the site. The amphitheater is well preserved, the temple less so. There's a small museum here as well - nothing special, but compliments the site nicely. Note that it closes at 2pm, at least in the winter. Local buses drop you... More

If you are in the area you must do a walk through the museum and the ruins. Wasn't aware there was a Roman Ruins in the area that was so impressive
