View of Florence from Fiesole. Fiesole provides nice views and a peaceful walk around forest hills and an ancient theatre. Several walking paths start or end in Fiesole.

    1. Thank you Stavros! I am sure you will take even nicer photos when there 🙂 My suggestion would be to organize a road trip around Tuscany for 3-4 days allocating one day to Florence. Unless you are really interested in museums and medieval palaces, churches, etc the most important stuff can be easily covered in one, maximum two days. On top of it, it gets a bit tiring with so many tourists for more days.
