landmark tower
Jun. 2021
the tower of the cathedral is the main landmark of Fiesole, but inside the church has little to offer.

Wonderful Quiet Place
Nov. 2019
We stopped in at the Duomo in Fiesole twice during our recent stay. It is such a wonderful quiet spiritual place. I think it is about 1,000 years old. The architecture is similar to San Miniato in Florence.

Must See

the cathedral is situated in a small town just outside of Florence called Fiesole only 10 klms or so from main centre - we travelled there on the hop on hop off bus but you can also take normal bus or taxi. The cathedral is very beautiful and check the rules on dress before you go. There is also a outdoor roman ruins which is also good to check out. The little town square has shops and some eateries for food and drinks and also a mobile van that sells sweets. A very nice afternoon trip.

Dark interior, altar area construction
Dec. 2018 • Couples
We stopped here on a cold, rainy December day. Luckily the cathedral was open and not closed down for lunch. There were few lights which made it difficult to see anything. The altar area was closed off and blocked mostly from vision due to some sort of construction going on. We could see there was an interesting altarpiece but it was so far away from where we were allowed to go that it was difficult to make out. It was by Lorenzo di Bicci. Frustrating to come all this way and not see much. There was also a fresco of St. Sebastian accredited to Perugino.

Very nice to see
Nov. 2018 • Family
This is a very beautiful building inside, it has some lovely frescos. They do have some dress code rules with you respect when you enter a church but don’t let this put you off as it is a beautiful place.

Worth visiting

This is an interesting building to visit, but will not take much of your time unless you have a great interest. A wonderful sense of calm as one would expect.

Interesting to visit. We had a guide that helped us with the history and significance of the building and gave us nice overview of the artwork.

Huge tower
Jun. 2018 • Couples
From far away you can already see the bell tower of the cathedral. It is a very old structure, built in the 11. century.

Interestingly dark and intriguing
Apr. 2018 • Couples
Not a church of beauty, but a large church of intrigue. It was begun in 1028, and completely restored in the 1800's. There is a relic here, the body of St Romolus, who is the St of Fiesole.
Also, the exit doors are some of the largest I've ever seen!

A lovely place to go to
Aug. 2017 • Family
The cathedral is a lovely place to visit if you have time in Florence. There are so many places to see in Florence and this is just one of the many magical places to see. Well worth it!
