Owner description: Dating back to the 11th century, the duomo of San Romolo has a Romanesque interior and a massive bell tower.

The cathedral doesn't look very old, but it's belongs to the 13th century. Probably it has a good renovation. Worth the visit because of not so common construction with the presbytery and charming interior of the real Romanesque church. The building seens to be too big for today's Fiesole. Being a popular touristic attraction the cathedral saves the "homely" atmosphere of neighborhood church.

Cathedral is a little gloomy, but worth a look. Opposite the bus stop and not too far to walk. The views outside are what visitors come to this small town for.

San Romolo di Fiesole (the Cathedral of Saint Romulus) is a quiet cathedral in Fiesole. The church itself is very spartan with limited adornment, but is a view into how the majority of Italians practiced their religion over 1000 years.

Wonderful sense of history and a peaceful ambience. This is a space where you can sit and reflect, without distractions.
