Dante’s House Museum in Florence is certainly one of the most striking buildings in the city. It is located between the square and the via Santa Margherita, in front of the Torre della Castagna and the remains of the church of San Martino al Vescovo. Dante Alighieri was born here in late May and early June of 1265, in the constellation of Gemini. The museum is located a few meters away from the Hotel Brunelleschi and it can be reached on foot in a few minutes. Not to be missed!

From the map shown below you can find out the path to follow to reach the Dante’s House Museum from the Hotel Brunelleschi. In a few minutes’ walk you will reach this interesting museum in the heart of the historic centre. The exhibition path touches the issues appealed in the life of the Supreme Poet through the events of the Alighieri, the conflict between the Guelphs and Ghibellines, the subsequent exile and the features of Florence in the XIV century.
The itinerary retraces the steps and the realities experienced by the poet: the Battle of Campaldino, the division of Florence into “sestrieri”, as well as a room dedicated to the art of Physicians and Apothecaries, the reconstruction of a typical medieval master bedroom, besides an audiovisual room dedicated to the Divine Comedy and the exhibition of traditional costumes of the fourteenth century.
