Quaint old village with a popup market in the Piazza. Very much enjoyed the view out over Florence. Took the bus which most tourists do. Be very careful yo validate ticket immediately upon boarding. A group of American College students got on and said they could not get to front of the bus to validate tickets. Bus was very crowded.... More

Nice little town that's stone's throw from Firenze. Plenty of history from Etruscan to Roman to Catholic Church. The panorama of Firenze is not to be missed.

This is a lively piazza--full of the comings and goings of the local Italians, filled with markets twice a week (except in inclement weather). It is ringed by a series of restaurants, caffès, and boasts two gelateria. The main bus and taxi stop for Fiesole. Two ATMs and banks, gift shops, and a pharmacy. A great place to people watch...

Fiesole has arisen before in Florence and its etruscgan walls and the Roman amphitheater is confirmed. His loving square is the place everyone's favorite for lunch, dinner or simply to enjoy an ice cream. Already from the square, on the right, you can admire a great view of Florence, but if you want to see full climbs toward San Francesco.

Fiesole is a lovely town in the outskirts of Florence that offers amazing views and vistas of Florence itself. The town square is a must to walk around or maybe have a coffee or gelato. Some days there is a lovely little market in the square too. Recommended for a visit!

We have eaten here but not for awhile. The last couple of times I have been shoved in between people in the entrance way even when I made a reservation. In advance. This last time they tried to squeeze us between a family with three loud screaming children. We were then given a table if you could call it one... More

Just a 10-minute bus ride up the "Beverly Hills" of Florence. Fiesole has been one of my favorite afternoon day trips while in Florence -- must see the VISTAS of Florence from here before it gets invaded by tourists like the Piazza di Duomo. A few great cafes and gelaterias to choose from for an afternoon pause in between visiting... More

Fiesole is a very small town and Piazza Mino is the center. All around the piazza are small but excellent restaurants and small shops. On Sundays the piazza is home to a local craft market.
