Fiesole, Italy - what to see and where to stay

Fiesole is actually an older settlement than Florence but was long ago overtaken by its former rival in the Val d’Arno below. For centuries Fiesole has been the favoured retreat of Florentines during the hot summer months and it still provides cool summer air and magnificent views. The main sights are the Roman theatre and baths, as well as the Duomo of Fiesole, and there are many splendid Tuscan villas in the area. Some are hotels and some are open to visitors. The most famous and the prototype Tuscan villa is the Villa Medici at Fiesole.
