Excellent place to discover the history of Fiesole and to see some awesome ruins & other finds. The price of admission is very good with what they have to offer. Very well looked after and informative, my family & I really enjoyed our trip here.

The archaeological museum is centrally located in Fiesole, and certainly worth a visit. The ampitheatre is the dominant structure, and regularly used for theatrical / musical shows. There is a sealed pathway within the site, with information boards located to explain the historical structures, including...More

We had a personal guide, but there is an iPad tour also available. The guide made all the difference expanding in detail on the life of the Romans. We did not do the adjoin8ng museum.

Compared to other archaeological sites we have been to this one is a bit of a let down. You can see most of the site without paying to get in, either from the adjoining cafe or from the city walls above. There’s not much interpretation...More

We did not visit the museum. Rather we walked around the Teatro Romano instead. And much liked. Particularly as we had visited some places in Greece early August. So we were walking once again in the footsteps of history. The Romans (and Greeks) knew where...More

We visited one afternoon and spent nearly 2 hours looking around the site and the museum. It was very quiet when we were there meaning we could really take our time and look properly and read about the 2000+ year history of Fiesole. Just about...More

We had a short look round this area. It felt as though it needed an input of money, as work was being done to different areas, and it had a feeling of needing more money spent. Some parts had old furniture stored away, tatty signs...More

Dear HelenBal, if you visited the archaeological area some days before, you found works in progress around the Etruscan-roman Temple (for the extraordinary and necessary restoration) and maybe some temporary maintenance works inside the Area. We apologise for the inconvenience and we hope to see...More
