    Avoid the crowds in Fiesole

    The little hilltop town of Fiesole may not be as famous as its crowded neighbor Florence, but if you're suffering from cultural fatigue, it's refreshingly different. It's long been known by Italian vacationers for its wealth of history and fewer crowds, but has yet to be fully discovered by foreigners. If you're lucky enough to nab one of the Renaissance-style Fiesole vacation rentals, you'll be surrounded by pretty olive groves, soaring Italian cypresses and views down over the gorgeous architecture. Head down to the piazza in the balmy evenings to gorge on fresh pasta with a glass of Chianti.

    Explore Fiesole by foot or pedal power

    The best way to explore Fiesole is on foot, though it's worth noting that much of it is hilly. If you follow the trail up from Palazzo Pretorio to the hill behind, you'll be rewarded with some spectacular views. Another trail takes you to the spot where Leonardo de Vinci tested his flying equipment all those centuries ago. Alternatively, you can explore the town and its surrounds on 2 wheels, either by pedaling up the steep hills or zipping around on an iconic Vespa. You're on vacation, take your time and stop en route for a little cappuccino or espresso.

    Fiesole has history dating back to the Romans

    Fiesole is crammed full of history and to see it, you won't need to spend hours queueing as you may in Florence. If you've nabbed a Fiesole vacation rental in the center of the city, a good place to start is the main square – Piazza Mino. From here you can easily explore the old town hall, the 11th century Cattedrale di San Romolo and then some of the sections of the Etruscan Walls further out. The 2000 year old Roman amphitheater hosts concerts and productions during the summer months, just like it would have done all those years ago.

    Try a visit to Fiesole in spring, you won't regret it

    The warmest time to stay in a Fiesole vacation rental is during the summer between May and September. While most foreigners stay down in Florence, it's still the town's most popular time and, as such, prices are at their highest. It's not going to be as warm in spring or fall, but with a climate comfortable enough to eat al fresco and some great deals to be found on Fiesole vacation rentals, it's an attractive time to visit. Winter can be cold up in the hills, but those who buck the trend may be pleasantly surprised.

    Tuscan wildlife awaits in Fiesole

    If you head east of Fiesole you'll find Casentinesi Forests National Park, one of the biggest forested parks in Europe. Astonishingly rich in Tuscan fauna, a hike around the park is likely to reveal everything from wild deer, stubborn little badgers and even wolves. This is wild boar territory and it's not uncommon to see one rustling around on the forest floor. If you bring your binoculars and point them towards the trees or around the marshes, you'll spot a ton of birdlife including graceful herons and tawny owls if you're there at dusk.
