A hidden gem in the mountains outside of Florence. A five minute drive to the local train station and for less than 2 euros and 10 minutes and your at the central train station downtown Florence! Very convenient and relaxing access to all the main attractions in town or grab another train to other wonderful cities in the area. We walked from the train station to ALL the main sites in Florence and one day took the train to Sienna! Our host Andrea was simply fantastic. He went ABOVE and BEYOND making our stay as special as can be. We book 7 nights and used Fiesole as our home base to launch off for day trips all over Tuscany; Lucca, Pisa, Sienna, San Giamangio. Do NOT visit Tuscany without a day trip to San Giamangio to visit the Duomo (cathederal)!!! No words can do it justice. Another special place in the area is the Florence American Cemetery and Memorial. Over 4000 men and women who gave their lives in the fight against tyranny during WWII lie in peaceful bliss in the gorgeous countryside they fought to liberate. A must see for ALL free people and not just military history buffs. Enjoy!!!!!!
