Tour description

On the occasion of the centenary of the Poet's death we will take you on an extraordinary journey into the bowels and darkness of "Hell". Together we will meet famous people, his contemporaries and fellow citizens who in their torments tell their harrowing stories and their tragedies. People who will make us discover the daily life of the time, the so-called "dark ages". Their stories will be so compelling that you will soon be involuntarily involved in them and you will ask yourself if they really deserve such a severe sentence, characterized by merciless suffering that never ends. We will discover together the reasons why the Poet with contempt and sometimes with respect places them in the bowels of hell. We will end the journey with the Meeting of the Chief of the Devils: Lucifer. But do not be afraid, the Supreme Poet will protect you. Itinerary.

Con un 'guru' come l'esimio dott. Pugliesi, consiglio sicuramente questa interessante ed arricchente esperienza. Persona colta che si distingue per la competenza, la preparazione approfondita, ma, soprattutto, per la passione con la quale trasmette a chi lo ascolta tanta cultura...una cultura con la C maiuscola. Grazie dottore! Emma

Sergio is a kind and knowledgeable guide. I think if one takes his tour in Italian, it would be enjoyable and interesting. His English is not fluent enough to allow him to share his knowledge in a thorough and nuanced manner for English speakers. There was very little detail and only broad brush strokes regarding Dante’s life, world and work.
