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.

Places to visit on holiday in Fiesole, Italy

Florence (8km) is of course the main place to visit after you have explored Fiesole and got settled in to your self-catering accommodation. Also well worth visiting are some of the smaller villages of the Florentine Hills, such as San Martino alla Palma (19km) and San Vincenzo a Torri (18km), which can almost take you back in time to a simpler, more traditional way of life.

Weather in Fiesole, Italy

You dreams of sunny days and balmy Tuscan evenings can come true if you visit Fiesole between May and September, as the daily average temperature for this period is a respectable 23C. July and August are the hottest months, with the mercury often rising above the 30C mark during these peak-season months.

Flights to Fiesole, Italy

Peretola Airport (FLR) is located just 11km from Fiesole, and can be reached from the UK by way of flight from London Gatwick through the Italian airline Meridiana. Another option is to fly to Pisa Airport (PSA) and enjoy a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside in order to get to your destination of choice.

Simply the best

5 of 5
The apartment is perfectly situated and beautiful inside. Modern kitchen and bathroom and air con throughout. Super comfy beds, and pristine clean. I simply cannot recommend it enough. The best bit is the terrace and particularly the morning views with the swallows singing. Quite simply a gem, and if I'm fortunate to go to Florence again, it's exactly where I'll stay!! Thank you Lucia.

Better than the best!

5 of 5
We are a family of 3 with a special needs adolescent son. First time in Tuscany on holiday. Due to our son's specific needs such as certain preferences in food and drinks, we had been in contact with Simone prior to arrival in Florence. From the get go he offered to assist in every way possible to make our holiday especially for our son as smooth as possible. I agree with everybody's comments about Simone being the best host ever. Very easy to talk to and makes himself accessible and available for queries and inquiries alike. Regarding the apartment, it felt like home soon as we set foot in it. Spacious and tastefully decorated. It had everything one needs. We had a welcome basket of fruits, wine and the fridge as stacked with milk and water. Nice treat! We had a rental car and Simone helped us find an overnight car park next door but one to the apartment. Great! The neighborhood is safe. Walking distance to most tourist attractions and the taxi drivers seem to know the location so very reassuring. Taxi stand about 2 minutes across the road from the apartment. It's hard to leave this place at the end of our holidays. I would gladly recommend this place to everyone. If we're ever back in Florence, would stay here again. Simone, a huge thank you!!
