The long history of Fiesole is constantly visible to tourists walking around the town, with a number of fascinating archaeological sites dating back over 2000 years: the Etruscan walls (which still partly encircle the town), Etruscan tombs on Via del Bargellino, and the astonishing Fonte Sotterra are some of the most noteworthy examples of local historical importance. Situated in a position of extraordinary interest for both its history and landscape, the Archaeological Museum conserves Fiesole’s historical treasures from members of various cultures that have lived in the region, from the Villanovan and Etruscan periods, to the Romans and the Longobards. Although Fiesole is small, it is still the seat of a number of churches, with an ancient diocese: its importance is clear to visitors of Saint Jacopo’s Chapel. In fact, inside this small building decorated with frescos a multitude of antique liturgical gold works are gathered.
