Taking Dante Alighieri's path

And no, I am not saying that I am now a poet of epic proportions. Instead, the video I'm about to show you is something that I took when I did my short Italian language course in Florence, Italy.

This is the path that leads to the Church of Santa Margarita de' Cerchi where Beatrice Portinari, the lady that inspired Dante, the Father of the Italian Language and Il Summo Poeta of Italian Literature, is enterred. From there I continued walking toward Dante's house. The video is a bit dizzying since I was walking with the cam, but I guess for anyone who wants to taste a slice of Florentine life, no shaking cam can deter him. Enjoy the video!
