Good day trip from Florence. We packed sandwiches and took a bus from Florence to Fiesole, then walked up and down the hills. Park has wonderful view of Florence. Sat on a bench, had lunch and enjoyed the view. Well worth the trip.

Nice walking trail through the parc with beautiful view on Florence. No directions available. Da Vinci was said to use this place as try out place but no indications available.
