I've returned to this museum on several trips. Sometimes I read all the labels, and study the exhibits, translating the Italian for my husband. At other times when I am alone, I spend hours drifting from exhibit to exhibit, sketching. Very interesting local history. Gives you a sense of the layers of history from the Eutruscans through the Romans to... More

A peaceful walk after visiting the excellent museum on the grounds. Views were beautiful, very few people when we were there which made for a nice break from the tourists of Florence.

The history is undoubtedly amazing, but the smell of the broken sewer was unfortunate - but sh#t happens (boom boom).

We used our Firenze card here. Visitors have the opportunity to wander through Roman and Etruscan ruins in relative calm without lots of tourists. Simply amazing. Museum is tucked away near the entrance. Make sure you leave enough time to have a good look through the museum.

I was not impressed this time of the site... It has not been kept by cutting grass and shaping the hedges... In the past times we have visited the site was in good condition...

While everyone was queuing to see David in a museum, we wandered up to Fiesole on the number 7 bus, and saw this amazing site from the Etruscan and Roman era. Here you can find a Roman Theatre, and the remains of their baths and temple. With a little imagination, you can feel the life around you, and the steps... More

The amphitheatre is rather lovely and the seating is intact (and still used for concerts I believe). The ruins are interesting, but not really my thing. What I loved was the little museum here. While it could have had more signage, you could get the gist of what was there... pottery, glass, skeletons, bronze figurines and quirky votive figures, to... More

This place is very small and offers too little for 7 euro (just walking around the ruins). And it was a rainy day so we couldn't really enjoy that walk.

Take the #7 bus from San Marco Piazza in Florence for the 25 minute ride up to Fiesole then head for this very interesting site. The Roman amphitheater is typical, but inside the museum you will find information about the Longabords (Longbeards) that is fascinating, including 4 graves. The views from the amphitheater are nice. There is a public restroom... More
