"While the Florentine plains were covered with vegetation and mosquito infested swamps, the ancient town of Fiesole sat on top of the hills, guarding the valleys around and dreaming under the stars. Enchanted by its views and perfumes of the Mediterranean breeze flowing from the sea, the mysterious Etruscans made it one of their own selected sites. Fiesole still retains all of it's charm, evolved thorough the middle age and then into modern times."



This single day hike starts in the main Piazza in Fiesole, at the bus stop. One of our authorized guides will take you through the narrow and winding roads for some fantastic views and sites. After exploring the abandoned mining system that provided Florence's palaces with it's precious gray stones "pietra serena" and Leonardo da Vinci's human flight experimental jump point, we will take a break just in time for lunch.  You will get to enjoy your Tuscan meal and relax by the pool in front of a vast scenery that includes a breathtaking panorama of Florence and the surrounding hillside (yeah ... during summer time bring your swimsuit). As we make our way back we will visit a lost subterranean spring, the archeological and medieval sites and, when available, a "pietra serena" carving demonstration.
