Dante's Florence - Private Guided Tour
Discover Florence on the trail of Dante with a 3-hour private guided tour for four people.
Walk down Florentine alleys and through Medieval squares accompanied by Dante’s words from the Divine Comedy.
Just as Dante was guided by Virgilio, you will be guided a professional art historian who will reveal many places cited in the world-famous masterpiece penned in the 1200s by the Florentine poet.
You will visit the baptistery in which he was baptized, the tomb of the friend he meets in Inferno in a rain of fire, the house belonging to his coward enemies and the palace belonging to his writer friend Cavalcanti.You will re-live Florentine life of the 1200s through Dante’s eyes, a rich city inhabited by knights and mistresses, craftsmen and tradesmen. A city consumed by internal conflicts, particularly between rich families and the clergy, and wars with the surrounding towns. A city that believed the end was near.
This experience would not be complete without a visit to the marble monument to Dante situated in Santa Croce Square.
The "Associazione AmicidiSean"—FriendsofSean Association—was founded to support Sean Hadfield and other people with his condition. Sean is a 24-year-old man who, at the age of 9, suffered an irreversible spinal cord injury, leaving him in a wheelchair. Due to the injury, he needs 24-hour care, which carries a high financial cost.
The objective of the association is to offer people with disabilities the highest quality of life possible with all the necessary care needed. The FriendsofSean Association also commits itself to giving a percentage of its funds raised to the Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos de Toledo in Spain.
