A breath of fresh air in Florence
Just northeast of Florence, quiet Fiesole is perched on a hilltop overlooking Florence and the surround Tuscan hills. Founded by the Etruscans 400 years before the Romans settled in Florence, wealthy Renaissance families owned villas here to escape the summer heat and be amongst the olive groves and great views. The weekend after fall break (November 5th), Tom, Zack, Kelley, Beth and I took the bus to explore, take a break from Florence's hectic pace and enjoy the sunset.
