A few weeks ago on a beautiful sunny, warm day, some friends and I ventured out to take a walk to Fiesole--a historic town located up on a hill only ~6 miles from the center of Florence.
This is maybe ~20 minutes into our journey... You can see Fiesole on those mountains in the background 😮
Buon giorno! 🙂
When we finally reached the main city of Fiesole, we entered a charming, old piazza with this statue to commemorate Liberation Day.
We ate outside at a delightful Italian restaurant, and were very happy that they actually played classic Italian music! (as opposed to the American music you often hear at public places in Florence)
The view of the Tuscan countryside was beautiful, and a nice change in pace from the city environment of Florence.
I loved all the little villas dispersed throughout the green countryside 🙂
Ciao for now! I have many more adventures to catch up on sharing soon, like a trip to Verona and a hike through the Alps! 😀
