Villa San Michele, Fiesole, Italy


On the hill of Fiesole, overhanging the valley of Arno and the town of Provence, stands the villa San Michelle, an ancient convent of tertiary franciscans, built in the XIVth. Century, this hotel shelters architectural treasures and frescos. Let's discover, with the chef, the delights of the Toscane cuisine, fritters of courgette-flowers with Pecorino, beef fillet of Chiana Brunello, all accompanied with a glass of wine from the nearby Chianti vineyards. A whole year won't be enough to find out about Florence and when it is a late hour of the night, let's sit down with the young Florentine facing the Ponto Vecchio to await the morning break.
