Overview

Since 1914 Archaeological Museum conserves Etruscan, Roman and Lombard finds, telling the history of Fiesole. In front of the Museum there is Archaeological Area, with the Roman Theatre (that holds shows and viewers during the Summer), the Etruscan and Roman Temple and the Roman Baths. Everything is sorrounded by the calm of nature, even though it's very close to Florence.

We visited one afternoon and spent nearly 2 hours looking around the site and the museum. It was very quiet when we were there meaning we could really take our time and look properly and read about the 2000+ year history of Fiesole. Just about...More

Dear HelenBal, if you visited the archaeological area some days before, you found works in progress around the Etruscan-roman Temple (for the extraordinary and necessary restoration) and maybe some temporary maintenance works inside the Area. We apologise for the inconvenience and we hope to see...More

We visited Fiesole twice during our recent visit to Florence. This was on recommendation from a friend of ours and we weren't disappointed. Beautifully situated on top of a hill with commanding views over Florence, the Museum and Archeological site were fascinating and a pleasure...More

A lot of artifacts are in the small museum, but the main attraction is teh amphiteatrum which looks like as "new" , not in ruins. Concerts are held also there.
