 Cathedral of Fiesole 

Address: Piazza Mino da Fiesole

Fiesole, set between the two hills of San Francesco and Sant'Apollinare, is at present one of the most famous place in the environs of Florence. Outstanding among the city's monuments is the cathedral dedicated to S. Romolo. Begun in the 11th century, it was later completed and enlarged, then remodeled and restored and integrated at the end of the 19th century, especially in the facade and the tower. The interior is on a basilica plan, with a nave divided from the side aisles by round piers - some with reused Roman capitals - and with a large semi-circular apse. A large crypt lies under the choir which is therefore raised above the floor level of the aisles, as is the case in the basilica of San Miniato al Monte near Florence.
