The BARGELLO MUSEUM and the house of DANTE ALIGHIERI - 3 hours

Built in 1255, the massive crenellated Bargello is a beautiful example of medieval architecture and is also Florence's oldest seat of government. Today it is one of the city's most important museums as it containins a superb collection of Florentine Renaissance sculptures including works by Donatello, the Della Robbia brothers, Verrocchio and Michelangelo.

Not far away, in the medieval district of the city is the house of Florence's most famous poet Dante Alighieri. It was his "Divina Commedia"  ("Divine Comedy") that established the Tuscan dialect as the literary vernacular of Italy. This house, which is said to have been the poet's birthplace, underwent considerable restoration in 1911. Today, we find a little museum inside which is dedicated to the incomparable Dante, one of the patriarchs of Italian literature.
