About Fiesole

Fiesole ist eine charmante kleine Stadt in den Hügeln über Florenz. Fiesole wurde von den Etruskern schon lange vor dem Erscheinen von Florenz gegründet und ist immer noch der Sitz der Diözese, die Florenz und diesen Teil der Toskana abdeckt. In Fiesole gibt es eine Reihe interessanter Sehenswürdigkeiten, darunter ein römisches Theater mit einem kleinen Museum und die Überreste einiger römischer Bäder. Die Kathedrale von Fiesole aus dem Jahr 1028 ist einen Besuch wert. Die kleine Kirche des Primerana auf dem Domplatz wurde 996 erbaut und im Mittelalter erweitert. Das gotische Presbyterium ist eines der wenigen gotischen Bauwerke in und in der Nähe von Florenz. Fiesole ist jedoch am besten bekannt für seine spektakulären Ausblicke auf Florenz und seine kühle Sommerluft. Die nahen Hügel sind mit aristokratischen Villen übersät, die gebaut wurden, um sowohl die Aussicht als auch die Sommerbrisen zu nutzen.

What People Are Saying

"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!"
