On Easter (AKA Pascoa), our wonderful program director Jodi, invited us into the Italian tradition of leaving the city on Easter Monday. We went to Fiesole, which was originally an Etruscan town. This is unusual for Italian cities because most were founded by Romans. Florence itself was founded by Roman soldiers as payment for their service. In Fiesole we saw the ruins of an Etruscan temple, and a roman temple which had been built on top of it. We also saw the remains of some Roman baths. The view overlooked they city of Florence on one side, and beautiful hills on the opposite.  AKA: a recipe for a beautiful view!
