If you've read Italian literature, then you must have read Dante's Divine Comedy. The house is the last resting place of Dante, opposite the church of Beatrice, where he first saw Beatrice, fell in love but never had her. Later, she got married to someone...More

We stumbled upon this museum when we were walking around and being an ardent fan of Dante's work, I was eager to check it out. Needless to say it was a waste of time and money. There is very little to tie the museum to...More

This is an intellectual, rather than a sensory experience. It is a nice old building which was redone in the 19th century and is filled with information which contextualizes the Great Poet's life and times very well. There is a fine broadsword which belonged to...More

The Museo Casa di Dante has all the potential to be a great museum, but it is just disappointing... the information about Florence and Dante is placed completely randomly across the floors and rooms. There is no intention whatsoever in ‘tell a story’ besides the...More

Not many people know this place, so it's not crowded at all even during peak season Florence. A must-see for literary and history buffs, just because it's Dante's house!

We hit this because my daughter loves Dante's writing and wanted to see his house. The focus is not really that much on Dante himself but on the time period in the city. It's definitely not "showy" - there are various artifacts and a lot...More

This museum is nothing like what you’d expect. It’s nothing like a home, or a depiction of how Dante lived as you’d expect. Instead it seems to be a collection of random artifacts from the city. There is some history of the city itself, but...More

Don't waste your time (and money) visiting this museum. Three floors with some information on Florence's history, but nothing resembling a home (as it is expected). It's not worth it.More

Personally, I have an affinity with Dante. There were several historical points in his life highlighted, that were very informative. But it is a bit dense for a casual visitor. If you have a passing or no familiarity with Dante, it will seem more like...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
