The details of the offer
The tour includes a special visit of Gradara and Fiorenzuola di Focara, where Dante wrote some sections of the “Divine Comedy”…
Between the 13th and 14th centuries, Dante Alighieri was drawn to the Romagna region, on the border with Tuscany, attracted by the ancient imperial ruins, the wonderful mosaics and the famous combination of good food and tales of love.
He was accompanied on his travels by a spendthrift and pleasure-loving brigade of cultured, wealthy Florentines.
