Capi4ca • 4 minutes read • May 25th, 2016
From La Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (

the Duomo

), we go to the 

Piazza della Repubblica

. This is the center of 

Florence

. The Colonna dell'Abbondanza is thought to stand at the intersection of the ancient Roman roads.

We are walking further along the narrow streets of Florence, Italy.

A lot of things in Florence are associated with the name of the poet Dante Alighieri, author of "The Divine Comedy". He was born in this city and was later expelled for political reasons.
On June 23, 2008, the Florence City Council voted in favor of the abolition of the sentence pronounced to Dante Alighieri in 1302.

We went to the Chiesa di Santa Margherita dei Cerchi church. Some historians believe that this was Dante's family church.

Here Dante saw Beatrice, who became his muse, for the first time.

It is believed that Beatrice was either buried here or in the Basilica di Santa Croce. So many years have passed!

Museo Casa di Dante is situated nearby. In fact, this house was built in honor of the poet in 1910. Dante lived in a house like this. His house has not been preserved.

This is our guide. Italians obviously lack the winter experience. We're wearing sandals and short sleeved shirts while the locals are in jackets and boots.

This gloomy fortress, in fact, is the Palazzo del Bargello (13th century).

There are so many different modes of transportation on the streets of the Old Town!

We arrived from the other side. There's a horse! This place is cramped with tourists, transport and trade.
You can see the bell tower of the Santa Maria Novella church on the left and the tower of the Palazzo del Bargello on the right.
