Picked up a free local map from the tourist info just along from the archaeological site entrance. There are 3 suggested walks and we went on the 2.5km walk to Monte Cesari. The walk takes you up through quiet lanes and then lovely pine trees...More

Almost all of the previuous reviewers who have preceded me have drawn the "Park Montececeri" as an excursion from Fiesole to Fiesole, ie which forces you to make twice the same way (some have even spoken of the Park confusing it with other places in...More

The free map of Fiesole lists 3 walks which I highly recommend. One is titled "The Stone Masons and Leonardo". The walk in its entirety is about 3 miles long, partly paved but solid trails in the park. It is however suggested that you be...More

The Parco di Montececeri is one of our favourite walks from the Pensione Bencista. Shaded from the sun, the climb is in places steep but the view over Tuscany from the small piazza with the monument to Leonard da Vinci is spectacular. Follow the path...More

Good day trip from Florence. We packed sandwiches and took a bus from Florence to Fiesole, then walked up and down the hills. Park has wonderful view of Florence. Sat on a bench, had lunch and enjoyed the view. Well worth the trip.
