The tourist buses in central Florence can take you to this mountain town which is not too far from Florence. You get to see the outer suberbs wher the "well heeled" live, see some overviews of Florence and visit this little town which is probably worth much more time than we spent.. There is a steep, narrow road which rises... More

By chance, we took the open top tour bus to San Domenico Fiesole and we had the chance to get off to walk around. FIrst, the views of Firenze we amazing. However, the town setting & its history are remarkable as well. After a few purchases @ a street fair and a nice red wine, we were back on our... More

Lovely views of Firenze, but so do a lot of other places. The Missionary Museum is quite interesting. The Monks sent stuff home from AA OVER the world and it is very interesting. It's also peaceful.

If you are looking for an escape from the busy city centre of Florence, then hop on the number 7 bus from Piazza San Marco to the tranquil hillside town of Fiesole (bus leaves from Via Giorgio La Pira on the east flank of the piazza). The journey takes less than 20 minutes and the views from the town over... More

A 10-15 minute bus ride from the centre of Florence (Number 7), the little town of Fiesole is definitely worth a visit. A short but steep walk up the hill reveals the most stunning panoramic view of the city of Florence and surrounding Tuscan hills, as well as the Monastery of Saint Francesco (free entry), which includes a museum contain...

If in Florence take the no 7 bus to Fiesole. It leaves Piazzo San Marco about every 20 mins. Tickets can be obtained from tobacco stall in square - the owner has very good English and is helpful. Bus terminus in main square and then returns to San Marco. Best views are from right hand side of bus. This small... More

Stopped in San Domenico for a light lunch and wow the views from all directions were just magnificent. It was also a nice place to buy a few pieces of jewellery hand made for a good friend back in Adelaide without being followed or hassled. Small friendly town of the Fiesole district and certainly worth a visit.

Easy busy ride on the no. 7 bus from the San Marco Church to this Estruscan hilltop town ... beautiful views of Florence. We chose not to sit at the group of restaurants on the hillside but found a wonderful little cafe/bar making wood-fired think pizzas and baking pastries ... and the best capuccinos. The Roman ampitheatre is impressive ...... More

A very easy bus ride (No. 7) from the San Marco church. 1.20 Euros gets you to this historic hilltop town, 25 minutes from the center of Florence. It's cooler, breezy and charming. If you go on Sat. there is an open air market in the square when you arrive. Follow the signs for the short hike up the steep... More

Very pleasant discovery of the Fiesole area; beautiful panoramic views of Florence from above. Easily accessed by public transportation and well worth the trip. The chuch of San Domenico was really nice; we were all pleasantly surprised.
