    Make a holiday rental home or villa in Fiesole, Italy your home away from home

    With a population of over 14,000 people, Fiesole is one of the biggest towns in the Florentine Hills, and it has some of the best holiday rental options in the area to boot. The delights of Florence are just a stones throw away, and on a clear day you can see them - as Fiesole sits in a lofty position, high up on a hillside in this idyllic area of Italy.

    Things to do in Fiesole, Italy

    Fiesole was once equally as important as Florence, and the main attractions in Fiesole are historical. The Badia (ancient cathedral) of St Romulus dates back to the early 11th century, and is just one of several old religious buildings that can be visited by the public. Another important building from the same time period is the Palazzo Vescovile – the old bishop's palace.

    The town also has some impressive parks and gardens, which are ideal for relaxing in, perhaps with a good book. The Parco della Rimembranza is a particularly nice option, with seating areas, trees, well maintained gardens and plenty of areas where you can escape the heat of the midday summer sun and let the everyday stresses and strains melt away.

    Florence is just 8km away, and is easy to reach – being just a few stops away on the number 7 bus. Taking public transport will allow you to make the most of the eating and drinking options in this fine city – which is exactly what you are likely to want to do after a busy day or sightseeing and enjoying this icon of Tuscany.
