Review of Piazza Mino

Piazza Mino
Ranked #5 of 26 things to do in Fiesole
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2014

The first time you go to Fiesole,and arrive at Piazza Mini, it is almost overwhelming.We have nothing like this in the USA. The views are absolutely wonderful. The Roman forum is great,just sit there and try to think about what it was like in their day. We have taken some friends there,taken our grandchildren there, all have a period of time when they just sit and think about what could have happened here.

You should take a stroll from the Piazza Mino, which is all uphill,and try to look into some of the gardens or homes. The views of Florence from in between the homes are spectacular.You can certainly understand why the wealthy Florentines had their summer homes in the hills of Fiesole.

Jumping on the number 7 bus from Piazza San Marco we rode up and through Florence enjoying Tuscan views to what felt like the top of the world to Fiesole! We missed the last stop and were on the way down the hill and got off on the next stop then opted to climb up to the Piazza! Spectacular views of Florence and along a narrow road where awesome and mountain bikers were speeding down a steep road training for the World race, which we attended in Florence the next day. Fiesole is a laid-back town which is romantic and blooming with Italian life! Would go back!!!

The piazza and Fiesole in general was a great little place, well worth a visit from Florence. It took us a while to realise the no 7 bus stop to get to Fiesole was not the one in the center of San Marco square but just off it! Tickets are cheaper bought from the little machine in San Marco square and get your returns also - no where was selling then in Fiesole! Nice market on some Sundays. Great views from the Monestry. Some nice little pizza and pasta places on the piazza.

If you fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of the city centre of Florence, then take your self out to the Piazza San Marco and jump on a number 7 bus up to the hill top town of Fiesole. (Top tip - buy your tickets before you board the bus and remember to validate them when you get on board)

When you get to the piazza, it has a range of restaurants and bars dotted around it, some with tantalising glimpses of Florence.

Try to seek out the path up to the San Francisco chapel, as it affords the best views of the entire city of Florence.
