How to visit the Church of Dante in Florence
In the small church of Saint Margherita de Cerchi Dante Alighieri had a church wedding but not with his beloved Beatrice. Dante’s loved woman Beatrice rests here uand there are always a lot of fresh flower next to her tombstone and visitors leave notes asking to help in love.

How to do?

1. Go to Via del Corso, 1.
2. The church is small and difficult to see. Don't hurry and take a close look at builings and look for tablet with the church name Di Santa Margcherita Dei Cerchi.
3. Listen to organ inside the church and see the pictures from Dante’s life – his meeting with Beatrice, his unhappy marriage and a church marriage of Beatrice and a banker de Bardi. Also here are plenty of drawings about Dante’s life made by children.
