Although Florence is a small city, it can still be a bit overwhelming at times! Luckily, there are a number of relaxing places nearby that you can go if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Just five miles northeast of Florence sitting on top of a hill is the quaint town of Fiesole. On a nice day, you can see a gorgeous panoramic view of Florence and of the mountains surrounding the city. It is quite breathtaking, very relaxing, and just a short bus ride away! See the Etruscan ruins, the Roman amphitheater, and have a glass of wine while taking in the breathtaking view. Fiesole is definitely very relaxing, but exploring it will still cause you to work up an appetite! Once that happens, you’ll be ready to hop on the number 7 bus and come back to Florence to indulge yourself in a night out for dinner with a clear head!
