Olmo is outside Florence, but not too far from the city. The green parkland is located in the northern hills near the Vetta le Croci (518m). It is perfect for outdoor pursuits and relaxing walks. Florentines tend to frequent Olmo, especially on Sundays, and there are refreshment stops where you can revive yourself with traditional Tuscan specialties. The Olmo fields are close to a set of crossroads which sends traffic in three directions - to Fiesole, Borgo San Lorenzo (where you can continue your walk), and Florence. It can be reached by going down Via Bolognese and once you have passed Pratolino follow the signs for Olmo.
