Fiesole was once a powerful independent city-state, with roots in the Etruscan civilization dating back as far as the 9th century B.C. In 283 B.C. it was conquered by the Romans, and after numerous wars with Florence in the Middle Ages, it finally fell to the Florentines in 1125. By the 14th century, many wealthy Florence nobles kept their homes in Fiesole, some of which can be seen today.
