IMMORTALE AMORE - The Church of Dante and Beatrice

SANTA MARGHERITA DEI CERCHI CHURCH
Address: Via Santa Margherita, Florence 
How to go: Walk. Is in a narrow alley just off Via del Corso or from Via Calzaiuoli follow the tourist signs for the House of Dante 


Stay away from visiting the House of Dante: it is always full of tourists and it is not too surprising. Rather, look for the little Medieval Church, documented as early 1032, which is only 20 meters away from the House...
