The town of Fiesole

Fiesole is a very small town – a tuscan jewel – just 4,3 miles away (really close!) from Florence, Tuscany. It’s like a room with a view on Florence…

The world famous renaissance inventor and painter Leonardo da Vinci (author of “La Gioconda”) had a vineyard here in the 16th century and from the hill of monte ceceri the first human flight took place.
