How to visit Dante's House Museum in Florence
In Dante House Museum all things remained the same as they were in the past. Here you’ll find some Renaissance period objects that represent the period when the great poet lived and created his works. You should definitely come to see the small house lost in the old streets of Florence.

How to do?

1. Go to Via Santa Margherita Street, 1 and buy the entrance ticket.
2. Explore Dante's House and find out what was in Dante’s mind when he was working on “Divine Comedy”, get to know about his relationships with Beatrice Portinari and why he was turned out of his homeland.
