Dante's House

Hotels near Dante's House, Florence, Italy .

Walking the streets of Florence, Italy, travelers find themselves walking in the footsteps of some of the greatest artists and minds of all time. In between the church of San Martino and Piazza dei Donati, Dante Alighieri, just one of those great Florentine minds, was born in the 13th century.

Today, visitors can tour what is called Dante's House, or Casa di Dante. However, the home is not believed to be Dante's actual birthplace. In the 20th century, the City of Florence ordered the building of the home to celebrate the birthplace of Dante.

The Museum takes visitors on a three-floor tour. The first floor houses documents and artifacts from Dante's youth. The second floor contains documents showing his exile from Florence in 1301, as it was the year of his condemnation. Finally, visitors make their way to the third floor of the museum to observe artists' depictions of Dante, including reproductions from Giotto, Beato Angelico, Andrea del Castagno, Ghirlandaio, Luca Signorelli, Raphael and Michelangelo.

After visiting the museum dedicated to the man who glorified the Italian language and produced the Divine Comedy, travelers can continue on to marvel at nearby Piazza Signoria. Palazzo Vecchio hovers above the crowds, perfect for a photograph.
