Overview

Since 1914 Archaeological Museum conserves Etruscan, Roman and Lombard finds, telling the history of Fiesole. In front of the Museum there is Archaeological Area, with the Roman Theatre (that holds shows and viewers during the Summer), the Etruscan and Roman Temple and the Roman Baths. Everything is sorrounded by the calm of nature, even though it's very close to Florence.

We visited Fiesole twice during our recent visit to Florence. This was on recommendation from a friend of ours and we weren't disappointed. Beautifully situated on top of a hill with commanding views over Florence, the Museum and Archeological site were fascinating and a pleasure...More

You can take a number 7 bus from Florence for a 25 minute ride to Fiesole. The central square often has a market, the day we went there were a number of craft stalls selling woodwork, pens, jewellery, etc. From there we took the steep...More

A lot of artifacts are in the small museum, but the main attraction is teh amphiteatrum which looks like as "new" , not in ruins. Concerts are held also there.

This review is in response to the one-bubble complaints by tourists who were disappointed by the concert stage going up in June-July. Yes, I, too, was taken aback by the huge construction at the base of the amphitheater. But one must consider the economics of...More

The 30 minute bus journey winds its way up to the hillside village of Fiesole - the views across Florence and the surrounding plain are astounding. Lots to do when you get there and the Museo Civico Archeologico is superb! A small but fascinating museum...More

Great place to see the ruins, the museum and the Tuscan hills on the other side. Quiet and very pleasant, very well documented and visitor-friendly. The place is magical.

If you are fully into the history and archeology then go ahead, pay the entrance fee and spend 1-2 hours wandering the site. If not, or you don’t have the time, and you are just curious what it’s about, then I recommend: reading the material...More
