So you want to take a day trip that won’t take all day? Here’s an idea: Board the #10 bus in San Marco and 25 minutes later, you’ll emerge in a tiny hilltop village. This is Settignano, a place with history, artistic importance and tasty eats, plus rarely trafficked streets perfect for idyllic strolls through the olive grove-dotted countryside. It’s calmer than its more famous neighbor Fiesole, which you can also reach by bus. Intrepid hikers can attempt to tackle the rugged, not-super-well-marked trail that connects the two.
