Travel Program

Dante's land by the Arno River. It’s a green lung with medieval castles and Romanesque churches. Dante, inspired by so much beauty, composed numerous poems there. Two places of high spirituality - La Verna and Camaldoli - arise "embedded" in this territory.

How the tour is structured...

Day 1
Full board. Meeting with the guide and departure by GT coach or minivan from Florence, towards the Casentino, going up the Passo della Consuma. There are many places that Dante mentions in the Divine Comedy. His stay in the castles we see during our trip is documented. In this 2021, numerous events and events are planned to remember the 700th anniversary of his death. Arrival after about two hours in Stia. Panoramic tour of the town and optional entrance to the wool museum. Lunch in the restaurant with typical products. In the afternoon visit to the Pieve and Castle of Romena, in Pratovecchio and arrival in Poppi. Dinner and night in the hotel in front of the Castle, which dominates the valley, where the Earls Guidi welcomed Dante into his exile and where – as we know – he composed the XXXIII song of hell. Overnight stay.
Day 2
Full board. After breakfast departure to La Verna. Free time for a visit to the Sanctuary and lunch in the Friars refectory. Continue to Camaldoli. Visit to the Hermitage and a few free hours to dedicate to a trek path in the shade of maple and chestnut trees in the Casentinese Forest. Return to Poppi, dinner and overnight.
Day 3
Half board. Morning dedicated to the Castle of the Earls Guidi and the historical nucleus of Poppi, a town considered an architectural gem of Casentino, its Castle is the symbol of the entire valley. Lunch in the restaurant. In the afternoon we will go through Campaldino, theater of the battle fought in June 1289 between Aretini and Fiorentini, in which Dante also took part. We will also see the castle of Porciano, now a private home. Return to Florence. End of services.
