The way the house was restored and the graphic analysis of the Divine Comedy that the museum shows are great but apart from that I don't think it's a place with loads of significance. There is nothing else to see.

I was really disappointed with this supposed museum. There is almost nothing original on display. Just interpretation which you can see it in the Guide Book you buy from the good Book shop at ground level. It is a waste of money and time

We had really high hope for this place, but it turned out to be total disappointment. There was almost no English introduction in this place. Many of the selection was not even related to Dante. Would not recommend to anyone.

Seriously, don't bother. Biggest waste of €4. Hardly any real information on Dante and not well curated. Spend your time elsewhere

This was apparently where Dante lived in Florence. It costs 4 euros, well worth it, lots of things to read about, you can do it all in 30 minutes. I preferred this to the Uffizi! Less disappointing. The shop sells the same stuff as the Uffizi shop, but is a little cheaper.

I was looking for this museum around and finally found after 20-30 minutes walking. Actually it was short and boring. This is beautiful house with a lot of story, but not sure it was mostly about Dante.

While visiting Dante's house is lovely and somewhat interesting, the experience could be enhanced by more interesting displays that are more meaningfully explained. Worth the euros but just barely.

Is this a museum? Is it a historical landmark? Is it even about Dante? An hour here and I still can't figure it out. The layout is confusing and the poor translations didn't allow me or my husband to learn a thing. Also, there is very, very little about Dante or his life.Thank goodness we used our Firenze card so... More

This is a beautiful house full of history, not just Dante's, but the historical context of the time. It is inexpensive, and serves as a beautiful way to spend an hour or less.

It was not worthy my time or money. There is nothing about Dante - no artifacts. I would have been better off going to Bargello museum second time for the same 4 EUR.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
