Florence is harmoniously surrounded by gently rolling hills studded with noble Renaissance villas, little medieval hamlets and important towns, such as Fiesole. Founded in the Etruscan time, conquered once as a Roman colony, last dominated by the barbarian Longobards; Fiesole hosts a very important archaeological park and other significant historic monuments. In the surroundings, a net of very easy paths leads us to the ancient quarries where the typical sand stone called ‘pietra serena’ has been mined since the medieval times. A stone that characterized Florence with its distinctive architectural color. A place surrounded by a superb vegetation of lush Mediterranean trees. The tour is effectuated by Minivan, a guide is always on board.
