Subject: Fiesole
At the top of the hill above Fiesole is my most favorite place in Firenze: Camping Panoramico. But it's more than hostel/camping; there are also cozy little bungalows, recently redone, with ensuite bath &cooking angle (nook). The view of all of the city at your feet from up there is wonderful, especially in the off-season when most of the campers have departed. The bungalows are popular with locals at weekends &holidays, so booking in advance is necessary. http://www.campingtoscana.it/panoramico
