“Fiesole is a small village located on the top of a hill which faces directly above Florence! The panorama is amazing, one of the best in Florence! Get lost in the small alleys of the village and if you have time you can visit also the archeological sites. Fiesole it's a good option as a stop after your visit in Florence coming back to the villa. Our restaurant Trattoria Tullio a Montebeni also it's very close to Fiesole and along the way to your property! ;)”

Church
“Meraviglioso. Un antico convento francescano raggiungibile solo a piedi in 10-15 minuti, dal quale si può godere una vista mozzafiato su Firenze. Su un preesistente romitorio sorse nel 1399 il convento francescano. Ad allora risalgono il protiro affrescato nel sottarco, il dormitorio di San Bernardino e uno dei due chiostri. Alla fine del Quattrocento la chiesa fu ingrandita nella parte absidale, costruendo il coro sopra la cappella sotterranea. Tra il 1905 e il 1906, la chiesa fu sottoposta ad un restauro che, sotto la guida di Giuseppe Castellucci, la riportò ad uno stile simile a quello originario. Nel 1998 è stato collocato alla parete sinistra il trittico di Bicci di Lorenzo.”

“E' vicino Firenze, sulla collina di Fiesole che è una località da vedere, facilmente raggiungibile in auto o in bus n.7. Da non perdere l'anfiteatro romano e il museo archeologico. Il JJ Hill è una birreria e paninoteca molto caratteristica. Si mangia e si beve bene in un'atmosfera molto british.”
