During this tour, your private guide will take you to follow Dante Alighieri's footsteps. You will learn about the customs, traditions, history and culture of the city of his time.
In Florence you can find many traces from Dante times: narrow streets and tower-houses, among which you can glimpse small squares that seem to be suspended in time and still teeming with life, magnificent Gothic monuments in pietra forte, a type of stone used to build outstanding masterpieces that are part of the city's heritage .
Deeping into the Poet soul, with this 2.5 hours tour, you will be really in touch with unique and magical places!
Walk through the tiny streets, close your eyes and imagine to see Dante standing out in front of the banks of the money-changers, hear his voice while he's talking with artisans and preachers. Stop and smell the fragrance of the ancient street food that is still part of the Florentine gastronomic tradition.
Discover the places where he lived, he was baptized, he studied, learn how his tribute was important in the political life of his time. Not to be missed is the visit of the ancient and small church of Santa Margherita de' Cerchi, better known as the Church of Dante and Beatrice, where it seems that the poet met his big love and muse and where you can leave love letters in a special basket!!!
Let yourself be taken back in time by the echo of the verses of the Divine Comedy that resound on the air.
