Have you ever been to Fiesole?

Fiesole is a charming little town located high in the hills above Florence. Fiesole was in fact founded by the Etruscans long before Florence made its appearance, and it is still the seat of the Diocese covering Florence and this part of Tuscany. There are a number of interesting sights in Fiesole itself including a Roman theatre with a small museum attached plus the remains of some Roman baths. The Cathedral of Fiesole, dating from 1028, is worth a visit. The little Church of the Primerana in the cathedral square was built in 996 and further expanded in mediaeval times. Its Gothic presbytery is one of the few gothic structures in and near Florence.

However, Fiesole is best know for its spectacular views out over Florence and its cool summer air. The nearby hills are dotted with aristocratic villas built to take advantage of both the views and the summer breezes.

"This Vespa tour was a wonderful experience! Our tour guides Antonio and another (I cannot remember his name, but he was perfect) were very patient with us. Both my husband and I were not experienced enough to drive our bikes with our teenage boys on the backs (our fault). They figured out a plan to make it all work out. Both tour guides took our boys on the back of their bikes, letting each of us drive our own Vespa. This a tour I will never forget. I highly recommend the experience and the people working at this company were wonderful and very accommodating."

"My husband and I decided it would be fun to ride Vespas through Florence. We found this tour prior to our trip and booked it without knowing what to expect. Eduardo (our tour guide) made sure we were both comfortable on the Vespas before we left to tour the city of Fiesole and the Piazzale Michelangelo. We had a fantastic time! Eduardo was very knowledgeable about both Fiesole and Florence and, by the end, we were feeling like expert Vespa drivers! Again, we HIGHLY recommend."

"Love, love, loved this! I can't explain how breathtaking the scenery was as we rode to Friole. We did start a little late, which lost us some time, there were two other people in our group and they were not on time. They finally decided to go ahead and take us. After they determined I probably shouldn't drive, I rode with my husband, and my 18 year old son drove with his sister on the back. I am glad I did not drive, we did hit a lot of traffic getting out of Florence. I could have ridden all day in the countryside! One of our favorite things we did on our European Vacation! And don't miss the view when your guide tells you to walk up the hill - it is worth the uphill climb!"
