Fiesole can offer a wide range of interesting ideas for a variety of itineraries, such as a visit to the archaeological area of the Roman Theatre, with its famous thermal baths and imposing Etruscan tombs, or an exploration of the Civic Archaeological Museum, with its marvellous exhibits illustrating Fiesole’s history from its beginnings in the Villanovan era to the present day.
Fascinating is also the Bandini Museum, where you can admire works of art ranging from the early to the late Florentine Middle Ages, embracing an artistic period that is often undervalued and devalued compared to the later Renaissance, but which can offer breathtaking evidence. You must see the Della Robbia terracottas.
Suggested itineraries by Villa Dei Bosconi
Visit Florence in one day
Florence is a world-famous jewel of Tuscany. Cradle of Art with a capital A, the city of the Medici family exudes history in every alley. There are so many artistic treasures in the Florentine capital that to attempt an itinerary that can cover them all in one day is an impossible task.
We at Villa dei Bosconi therefore suggest an itinerary that covers, at least in part, the most famous monuments and the most iconic places in the Medicean city, so that you can admire as many of the most astonishing testimonies that the cradle of the Renaissance has to offer.
