If you are looking for a great day trip from Florence consider visiting Fiesole. Perched on a hill, Fiesole is a respite from the madding crowd of Florence that can get alarming in summers!
Where is Fiesole??
Fiesole is a typical small Italian town only 15 minutes from Florence. It has quaint alleys, beautiful piazze and Roman ruins (no big deal). Above all, it is peaceful!
The town’s Piazza Mino is usually empty in the afternoon except for the owners of the Gelateria Tecano and a Bar. One can wander around aimlessly, click pictures and get gelato….Come to Fiesole with no agenda.
The only thing you should be doing is to walk uphill to the hill in front of you to see spectacular views of the Duomo of Florence that will simply blow your mind! The Duomo looks radiant but no picture can do justice.
