We wandered past this Museum. From the outside it looked promising, and we were hoping to find out much more about Dante. We didn't. The museum is a speculative collection of objects with very little or no relation to Dante, his death mask (which looked...More

This small museum relates the work and life of Dante Alighieri, XIII poet. It also gives you an understanding of life in Florence during that era. Why did the Tuscans build towers, what did their homes look like, who were their enemies etc... The museum...More

We discovered the Casa Di Dante, or the Dante House Museum by accident. While exploring the lanes from the Piazza del Duomo in Florence, we chanced upon the Casa Di Dante. Our group of four was all excited, being Dante enthusiasts in our student days,...More

Lovely building but they stretched a small amount of material too far. A shame they did not talk more about his work. Also, the translations are terrible, peppered with long flowery sentences that make no sense and go nowhere.

I thought this museum would be a nice change after seeing a bunch of paintings and sculptures. No, not much. The house purports to be the home of Dante and give a flavor of his life, but I found the displays lifeless and uninteresting. Not...More

I went in because, of course, I'm in florence and Dante is the symbol of the Italian literature, so why not? But the visit was overrated, the only thing I appreciated was on the last floor, some original books

If you want to understand more about the time of time in which Dante lived, then you can learn it here. However, this may or may not be Dante's home. There are artifacts from the period but nothing really directly linked to Dante. However, if...More

The Casa di Dante one would expect would be filled with exhibits devoted to his writings, but instead it'a primarily devoted to the interfamily wars of the period. Next to nothing on display on either the Comedy or the Vita. Not worth the entrance fee.

I had high expectations for this visit since I love Dante.. I have visited a lot of museums but this is probably the worst possible house museum. The shelves were dusty and dirty. The content was mainly placed up in the walls in big boards...More

Dante's actual house was completely destroyed during World War 2, possibly earlier, and nobody is exactly sure anymore where it stood, apparently. This museum is a tribute to the great poet-theologian that features some items relevant to his family, class, and biography. BUT, the 'medieval...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
