Perched in the hills above Florence, take a trip to this beautiful and charming town just minutes from the gorgeous and inimitable city of Florence in idyllic Tuscany. Florence, an ode to the Italian Renaissance, transports you to the time of Michelangelo, Giotto, and Donatello. Enjoy the incredible high-culture of Florence’s food, architecture, and joy for life. Fiesole is a romantic and delightful honeymoon stop, or a perfect place to come together, learn, and get inspired with your family.
Things to do in Fiesole
Fiesole is an art historian’s dream vacation. With more famous works than you could clasp your eyes on in Florence, check these museums and destinations off your bucket list. The Florence Cathedral and terra cotta dome by Brunelleschi (the “duomo”) is iconic of Florence and its architecture. The bell tower was designed by Giotto, making this the most popular sight in Florence. Climb to the top of the tower for breathtaking views of the city. The Firenze card will get you through all of these tourist spots, saving you time and money when it comes to buy tickets! Next, take the necessary trip to the Galleria dell’Academia di Firenze to see (the one and only) Michelangelo’s sculpture of David. The Uffuzi Gallery should be next on your list, with so many treasures on display inside the museum. Boticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and Da Vinci’s “Annunciation” are there, to name a few. Don’t miss the Caravaggio collection! Nearby, the ancient Ponte Vecchio bridge is a must-see, an example of the gorgeous outdoor Florentine architecture after all the museum visits. San Lorenzo is a great area to walk around and shop, as Florence has more than just (incredible) art! See the eclectic market as you walk around and try the delicious Florentine food. In Fiesole, eat an expensive but very worthwhile dinner at Le Cave di Maiano, where the outdoor stone tables come from the same quarries where Michelangelo got the stones for his sculptures.
Day trips from Fiesole
Although Fiesole is so dreamy you won’t want to leave, you’ve got to take advantage of the cities around you. Pisa is an hour away, and of course holds the 14th century tilted landmark knowns as The Leaning Tower of Pisa. Don’t forget to see other sights in Pisa, such as The Knight’s Square, the political centre of medieval Pisa. The square has a statue of Cosimo I de Medici in the center. The Pisa baptistry is another stop, showing the architectural transition to the gothic style with its marble and pointed arches. To get a feel of the rustic Tuscan countryside, visit Chianti, half an hour away from Florence. The vineyards, hills, medieval villages, and wine cellars are there while you taste Chianti’s finest. Wine, wine and more wine — when in Italy! Venice is almost three hours away from Florence, and is accessible by train. The semi-aquatic city is incredible, with the infamous Peggy Guggenheim museum which represents riotous modern art. If you’re lucky, catch Venice during its Biennale, which begins every other year. The Bienalle hosts the best of contemporary art from all over the world, and is housed in museums all over Venice. Don’t forget that gondola ride, along with the tempting Italian pizza, gelato, and pasta.
Book yourself a quiet dream home, decked out in classic terracotta, with the help of Tripping. Stay in the centre of the city to live like the Renaissance artists, or further out to get closer to the Tuscan countryside. Tripping has thousands of rentals in the area for you to choose from. Summer, spring, winter, or fall — it won’t disappoint.
Transportation in Fiesole
Florence Airport, or Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola, will probably be your first stop on your journey. The central train station in Florence is called Santa Maria Novella, and has hourly trains going to Venice, Rome and Naples. ATAF bus number 7 will take you from Florence to Fiesole every half hour until midnight. You can purchase tickets in advance for longer bus and train rides, which is easily done, and day passes might be more convenient if you plan to travel a lot. However, walking around and finding that perfect family-run restaurant as the sun sets is an experience you can only get on foot!
