Two Americans in Italy – Etruscan Hilltown of Fiesole [PICTURES]
While my wife and I were in Italy, we enjoyed our time in Florence very much. Part of that time was spent in the hillside town of Fiesole, which is just outside of Florence. We were transported back in time by the ruins of a roman bath and amphitheater. It was one of my favorite places we visited in Italy.
Visit Florence describes Fiesole this way:
This small town hides a wealth of surprises: the massive stones that make up the Etruscan walls, the remains of Roman baths, the green hilltop where Leonardo da Vinci first experimented with the concept of flight, and the Roman amphitheater that still serves as a stage for the EstateFiesolana summer events. The small city center is home to a wide range of historical sites, churches and parks where you can spend some time escaping from the hustle and bustle of Florence.
A big thank you to my lovely wife, Jenny for taking the wonderful photos!
