“Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Worth the climb. Such a peaceful place. I didn't get down to the free museum so can't comment there. We enjoyed the visit to the town, a bit of a break from Florence. Nice and quiet.

“Well Worth the Views! 🇮🇹”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

The Chapel is charming, the museum has a mummy, but most impressive is the view of the city.
Fiesole is a short and inexpensive bus ride, north of Florence, that is 100% worth your time. The view from the south grounds of the Mission offer a priceless view of Florence and the Arno, particularly at sunrise and sunset on a clear day. Not to be missed!

“Great view, great climb, great visit.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

My husband studied at St Francis of Assisi Primary school and imagine our surprise finding the monastery on top of Fiesole. With all the Chinese painting and statues and letters, esp one from the Emperor. This was special.

“Must See View of Firenze”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

For 24 years we have had the pleasure of living in Fiesole for part of the summer. For 24 years we have climbed the hill to San Francesco for the pleasure of the most beautiful view of Firenze. The best time to visit the Convento is in the morning. The best time to take in the view is in the evening.
