Cover your head and your shoulders as you will feel the chill of this dark, large church. Smell the ancient stones' rememberance of past services. I was inside one hot August afternoon - alone.

Cathedral is a little gloomy, but worth a look. Opposite the bus stop and not too far to walk. The views outside are what visitors come to this small town for.

San Romolo di Fiesole (the Cathedral of Saint Romulus) is a quiet cathedral in Fiesole. The church itself is very spartan with limited adornment, but is a view into how the majority of Italians practiced their religion over 1000 years.
