From Fiesole it's an easy walk downhill to San Domenico (along a secondary road). For the first part of the trip, the road is one way. At some point it becomes two way (but no wider). The technique seems to be, drive fast and honk your horn to warn cars coming the other way! So you need to take care... More

Fiesole in itself is a nice place to visit. However the lucky visitor who happens to be there on a sunny day the wonderful panoramic view of Florence's skyline is AMAZING. Next to the view from Piazzle Michelangelo this 15 min bus trip to Fiesole will imprint in art lover's memory images to last a !lifetime.

we're talking about Fiesole, a little village and a church on top of a hill from where we can see Florence. The view is worth a thousand words, allow me to use a "cliché". But it so very true!

Fiesole is a charming hillside town above Florence with attractions of the Roman Amphitheater, ruins and Etruscan museum amongst others. It's a walking town with ease to visit the sights. Another great sight is San Domenico Fiesole where you can get great panoramic views of Florence and the surrounding countryside. It's a bit of a walk up, but worth it.... More

The drive up to Fiesole is twisty, winding roads but when you get to the top??? The view looking down on the City of Florence is gorgeous.

The walk up to the San Domenico is worth it for the views over Florence. It was not crowded in June so was a welcome retreat from the business of Florence.

If you take the #7 bus to and back from Florence, be sure to have and to validate your ticket. The bus police target the #7 because it is usually full of foreign tourists who are not familiar with Italian bus systems. These guys pounce on the tourists ,and the fine they extort for not having a validated ticket is,... More
