This is the thing to do on a visit to Fiesole

Great walking site of a well kept Roman ruin coupled with a very good museum. It was worth the hour we spent there.

Wonderful location, view, and museum. If you've made the effort to get to Friesole, you owe it to yourself to visit these grounds, at least. There is a combined ticket for grounds, Roman and Civic museum, or you can just do the amphitheater. If you are a history nut like my husband, go for it. If you are all about... More

The ruins have been well reviewed here. So, let's focus on "how to get there". First, you will need to take the bus. It is much more interesting than hailing a cab. I'll STEP YOU THROUGH HOW TO TAKE THE BUS. First, find Piazza San Marco, it is about 5 blocks above the Duomo. A side street of the Piazza... More

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
