    Description :

    “Fiesole stands in rolling hilly countryside 8 km (5 miles) north of Florence. Idyllically situated among olive groves, it is a popular retreat from the city thanks to its hilltop position witch attracts cool breezes. Founded in the 7th century BC, the original Etruscan colony was a powerful force in central Italy, only surrendering its supremacy after the foundation of Florence (1st century BC).”
