There will also be a guided tours of places associated with Dante’s life and the action of the Comedy such as Santa Croce, and we will visit Casa di Dante -Dante’s house in Florence.

Feedback from Participants:
meaning and depth that goes a long way into the soul in touching the heart, the body and the mind. A dialogue between the past and the present.”
“What a terrific few days in Florence – thank you so much for organising this. It was a real joy for me from start to finish. I was amazed at the depth and understanding of everyone in this insightful group of people. Always a pleasure to meet up with people who want nothing more than to develop in body, mind and spirit.”
“A belated thank you for a absolutely wonderful time in Florence on all levels made possible by your passion, kindness, attention to detail, and careful holding. It was a gem of a time for me and lives on as I ‘purge’ on different terraces (well all of them actually, much to my surprise!).”
“Thanks for the opportunity to have the words of Dante’s poem opened to our understanding so brilliantly by Beatrice and to experience so much of the beauty of Florence. “
“Thank you for allowing the Florentine experience to happen and unfold with such grace. I enjoyed every minute of the journey: the tremendous work Bea did on the Divine Comedy as well as your constant care to provide the best for all of us : visits to the places related to Dante, food, restaurants and love. For this heavenly time I am grateful and feel privileged to have been there.”
