What’s common to Valdichiana Senese, Siena and Florence, more than good wines, the art and the beautiful of Tuscany known all over the world? The answer is Dante Alighieri, the “great poet”.
Valdichiana Living proposes a unique journey in Tuscany on the track of Dante Alighieri and his Divina Commedia to celebrate seven hundred years after the great poet’s death.
You will stay in Valdichiana Senese, the Italian wellness paradise in 2020. From here you will discover Inferno, Purgatorio e Paradiso during a six days stay in the heart of Tuscany.
You will descend to the hell in the underground tunnels of Sinalunga. From here you will arise to the circle of greedy, where you will be tempted from the Chianina meat and the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG, and then to the Purgatorio, where you will meet Ghino di Tacco, who will accompany you to the visit of Torrita di Siena.
The ascent to the Paradiso will be complete in Siena, Pia de’ Tolomei’s city. Here you will visit the Duomo Museum and the Gate of Heaven, that opens up to visitors a unique view above the Cathedral.
Then you will visit Florence, here Dante Alighieri was born. A guide will accompany you in the most significant places related to Dante: Cerchi and Donati’s towers, Dante’s house, the church of Santa Margherita where he met Beatrice for the first time, Signoria Square where Farinata degli Uberti lived but also Duomo Square with the baptistery of San Giovanni where Dante was baptized.
The offer includes a copy of “Divina Commedia- L'Inferno: illustrato da Simone Ginanneschi". Simone Ginanneschi draws graphics of Divina Commedia for Valdichiana Living.
