  • Small but very rich collections of Roman, Etruscan and Lombard artifacts. Visit the archiologicsl site yo see a beautiful Roman theater and the remaibs of baths and a temple. Incredible views.
  • An oasis of quietness in Fiesole. Great atmosphere and a pretty well conserved amfi theatre. Watch out for the small lizards cause they ran and jumped around the unbeaten paths, lol. There's also a small bar and Restaurant with a stunning view over the ruins and the valley. Tip: when you leave the site and go to thé left you'll find a beautiful piece of streetart in a little garden by Florentin artist Zed One
