Over the centuries many tourists have been fascinated and seduced by the timeless landscapes and unique air of a great past that is Fiesole. Soft hills laden with olive trees and secular cypresses, scattered with beautiful villas made even more precious by splendid gardens, vineyards and archaeological sites. The beautiful position of this town, overlooking the city of Florence (just 8 kms from the city centre), has been praised by many great poets, writers and artists of the past such as Boccaccio, Lorenzo il Magnifico, Poliziano, John Milton, Alexandre Dumas senior, Anatole France, Arnold Bochlin, Gertrude Stein, Frank Lloyd Wright and by famous characters such as Beato Angelico, Leonardo da Vinci, Cosimo dei Medici and the Maiano brothers.
