Fiesole is an ancient town sitting on a high ground overlooking the Arno Valley to the south and offering some of the scenic views of Florence. Etruscans founded Fiesole (Viesul, Vipsul, or Vil in their language) probably sometime around the 9th-8th century BC. However, the first documented mention comes from 283 BC upon being conquered by Romans.
The town did pretty well for itself during the course of history. For instance, in the 14th century, Fiesole became the official gateway for the rich and wealthy of Florence. In fact, it remains the richest municipality in Tuscany until today!
Some of the top landmarks to visit include the remains of the original Etruscan walls, Roman theater, and baths, Palazzo Comunale, or the Cathedral of Fiesole.
