Overview

Through Piazza del Duomo with its Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Bell Tower – and Signoria Square, dominated by the imposing Palazzo Vecchio - there is the Dante District, with its house, church, oratory, alleys, tower and medieval gossip.

You will discover the lifestyle of a famous and rich man of the XIVth century. In the late Middle Ages, the overwhelming majority of poetry was written in Latin, and therefore accessible only to affluent and educated audiences. He himself would even write in the Tuscan dialect for works such as the Divine Comedy. After a fast Italian lesson, you will visit Orsanmichele Church.

It was originally built as a grain market in 1337, but between 1380 and 1404, it was converted into a church used as the chapel of Florence's powerful craft and trade guilds. Then they were charged by the city to commission statues of their patron saints to embellish the facades of the church.

This tour will finish with a stop in Palazzo Davanzati, first architectural example of medieval house built by a rich family of merchants: from the courtyard inside to the private rooms with some extraordinary frescoes, it will be a step back in time.
