On Saturday three of us ventured a few miles out of Florence to to the lovely hilltop town of Fiesole. The town sits up high and overlooks all of Florence. The roman ruins were closed so we were unable to visit but planning to return to do so. The views definitely topped those of Piazzale Michaelangelo- a feat I didn't think was possible. It was foggy out so my pictures don't capture the true beauty we witnessed that day. 

We explored the town and hiked up steep hills (and I thought San Francisco was bad). We then watched the sunset after exploring an old monastery and called it a day. Fiesole is very beautiful and from every section of the city you could see a  different view. On one side Florence and the other Tuscan countryside.
