The Renaissance Ring

Things To Do: Hotels/Inns/B&Bs

Agriturismo Poggio al Sole

A small, comfortable B&B on a farm in the countryside, with olive groves and rural views. You will need a car, as it’s located well out of Fiesole, but that’s the point. more...

Antiche Scale B&B

Small, well-appointed B&B right near the start of the recommended walk in this Short Escape, with good-sized rooms, some with views. Good value. more...

Belmond Villa San Michele

A luxury property, this is one of the most pricey hotels in the area. Many rooms have beautiful views and luxury appointments, and the pool has a great view of Florence. This is a great location for a corporate retreat or destination wedding for those with the means. more...

Florence Country Relais

People rave about the quality, location, and charm of this B&B and the owners. It is located deep in the countryside, but not far from Fiesole and Florence. Car required. more...

Hotel Villa Bonelli

Centrally located to the recommended walk, this nice property is great for travelers looking for a good value. Some rooms have views of Fiesole hills. For those who criticize this hotel, remember that it costs much less than other options. more...

Le Cannelle Bed & Breakfast

A small B&B located near the recommended walk. It has a good price-value ratio, but inquire about the location of rooms if noise is a big issue, as some do give on to a busier street—-by Fiesole standards that is. Note you will have to drop off your bags and park in the public parking several hundred yards away. more...

Pensione Bencista

The villa has rooms with various exposures, and, as at many hotels, you should inquire about specific rooms to make sure you are satisfied. It is located on the road leading from Florence up to Fiesole. more...

Villa Di Campolungo Agriturismo

This exquisite B&B on a country estate requires a car and good navigation, but it’s truly a short escape. As with any of these hotels, make sure you inquire as to the nature of the room you will get. Each of the seven rooms has its own characteristics, but the focus here is on quality and elegance at a cost much less than in nearby Florence. more...

Villa Fiesole Hotel

Great location on the road leading up to Fiesole from Florence. It offers especially good prices off season, and great rooms. Make sure you specify that you want a room with a view in a quiet location or you may be disappointed. more...

Villa Miralunga

Located in a traditional villa near to where Leonardo Da Vinci tested his air machine, this small hotel receives high marks for the quality of the rooms and level of service. more...
