  • It is a little weird to see after so much Renaissance, Roman and Etruscan ruins. The ticket can be purchased in combo to enter two museums of ancient porcelain, but I only bought the ticket to the ruins since I was not interested in see old crockery. Maybe a little expensive, 7 euros for a maximum 10 to 15 minute walk, but worth paying it when traveling back in time through the ruins.

  • Worth a trip and a little walk round if you're into history. The little cafe serves good coffee to sit and relax and enjoy the views.  more »
  • It's rare to see an archaeological site also well equipped for wheelchairs, many lifts, a friendly staff. The Museum is also accessible. Explanation complete during the visit. Nice 1 h 30.

  • I was fascinated by the Etruscan of the yearning of the Fiesole hills. Years looked forward to the moment, reminiscent of Etruscan Splendors on this Hill, so that pleasure cannot be words. On the other side of the Archaeological Museum of Florence.
