  • Two things only to report positively about this place: low price, only 4 euros and the poet's death mask (assuming it's true). For the rest fluff.

  • the Italian language has its roots in poetry of Dante, a poet provided the melody of the current talks. visit your House to see how he lived, in a medieval building, beautiful in your strength of details: there he loved and exalted Beatrice. To meet this space is desirable to know a little of this history, to better understand and appreciate the environment steeped in a lifestyle of poet.

  • Is inappropriate and poorly organized. I revisit goes completely from top to bottom. You have to do a lot more. To charge the ticket is a rip off, nowadays is not worth it.

  • I can't give it 5 stars because it isn't organized very well. Each room gives you something to see and think about but it doesn't focus on the 10 star poet it's supposed to be paying tribute to. It was only 4 euros which was well worth it because of the death mask of Dante himself. It's history that you can't find anywhere else in the world. Pay the small tribute and soak in the history.
  • Very quiet location, wonderful house. You cab feel the spirit of Dante.
  • There's no evidence, at all, this was Dante's house. Lots of literature for some of Firenze's most notorious families.
  • Although simple, it contains interesting information about Dante and Florence of his time.
  • Not very inspiring. All the exhibits have thick blocks of texts - some don't have english translations. It's not so much a museum devoted to Dante as one devoted to Florence's medieval history - which is fine, but fails to properly introduce the visitor to it without drowning them in names and dates without clear context (for instance, they do not explain who the Guelphs and Ghibelines are).
