The stylish apartment Beatrice is located on Via del Purgatorio. The area is closely connected with the works of the Italian poet Dante of the late Middle Ages. The apartment was named after Beatrice a Florentine Woman who inspired the Italian poet Dante and appears as one of his guides in The Divine Comedy. The name Beatrice comes from the Latin which means “she who makes happy”.
Via del Purgatorio (which means Road to Purgatory) will give you a sense of “old Florence” with its narrow streets and street lamps although today’s via Purgatorio is filled with happy souls exploring the City and enjoying many fine restaurants in the street adjacent, Via Del Parione.
