The cathedral is a lovely place to visit if you have time in Florence. There are so many places to see in Florence and this is just one of the many magical places to see. Well worth it!

The church dominates the lower area of the town. It is plain but this adds to its charm with its height bell tower. Inside it is quite dark but interesting. Worth a look if in the town.

The Cathedral of Saint Romulus of Fiesole is a hard building to get into. But well worth the effort as is only a 15 minuet bus ride from Piazza Saint Marcos in Florence on a number 7 bus. The Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Romulus,...More

While visiting Fiesole, I was fortunate enough to attend the noon Epiphany Mass at the Cathedral San Romolo. Not very big, nor was the noon attendance large. Great couple of hours to spend on a chilly day touring Fiesole.

This Cathedral it's located just in Piazza Mino, where the bus leaves passengers, in Fiesole's centre. Cathedral has a great contrast to Baroque churches that you can find in Florence. The tower is beautiful and you have a glimpse of Tuscany outsider the very touristic...More

This is a stark and dark church in the center of beautiful Fiesole. The town floats above the Firenze valley and the soaring tower floats above the hill village. There is an intricate carved pulpit decorating the altar that should be seen.
