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.

The public bus ride from Florence to Fiesole is a very picturesque ride. The day we were at the ruins and museum, they were very empty. It was nice to stroll around and not walk in to lots of tourists. There is also a very...More

The ruins of the Roman Theater, baths and Etruscan altars give a sense of ancient times. The view across the Tuscan hills is spectacular. The museum has a nice collection of artifacts and bones chronicling the Longobard invasion.

So sorry, life has been too busy since Italy 2016! But it's still a beautiful fresh memory. I guess you now know if there are May concerts in the amphitheatre. I would have advised you to check their website, or email the... More
