The beasts of Fiesole, Firenze, Italy

High in the hills on the northeastern edge of Florence is the scenic Etruscan town of Fiesole. Conquered by Romans in 283 BC, it was once a powerful independant town that rivaled Firenze. Their skirmishes led Dante to reference “the beasts of Fiesole” in his Divine Comedy.

The views down to Florence are indeed spectacular. Can you recognize the cattedrale?

There are lots of other things to see, such as the Roman amphitheater, but really this view is the most spectacular
