We hopped of at a small community called Fiesole and had a coffee there and a good walk around. Another pretty place. We walked up a very steep hill to the lookout which was certainly worth the climb. After an hour there we hopped on the bus again until we reached the Arc De Triumph and walked and walked, it is ...

Apart from a lengthy wait for our 'skip the line' tour (ha ha), both tours were thoroughly enjoyable and educational - a must for any visitor to Florence. The Accademia museum showcases Michelangelo’s sculptures, in particular the original statue of David. Situated in a separate domed area ...
