During the summer, you find a huge red inflated sofa where you can sit admiring the wonderful panorama! Forte Belvedere can be reached by bus number 13 from Florence central train station S.M.N.

FIESOLE A small village on a hill overlooking Florence (near the city stadium)…it takes only 5 minutes to reach but it seems like a completely different part of the world.

Fiesole can be reached by bus number 7 from Florence central train station S.M.N.
