Getting Here and Around
The simplest way to get to Fiesole from Florence is by public bus: Take the No. 7, marked "Fiesole," which you can pick up at Piazza San Marco. If you decide to drive (the bus is so much easier), go to Piazza Liberta and cross the Ponte Rosso heading in the direction of the SS65/SR65. Turn right onto Via Salviati and continue onto Via Roccettini. Make a left turn to Via Vecchia Fiesolana, which will take you directly into the center of town.
There are several possible routes for a two-hour walk from central Florence to Fiesole. One begins in a residential area of Florence called Salviatino (Via Barbacane, near Piazza Edison, on the Bus No. 7 route), and after a short time offers views over garden walls of beautiful villas, as well as the view over your shoulder at the panorama of Florence in the valley.
