The cover of the eBook by Florence Inferno

A Guide to Florence per Dan Brown’s Inferno

Located in the Italian region of Tuscany, Florence was an important centre of trade, finance, and culture as early as the Middle Ages.

The city is considered by many to be the birthplace of the Renaissance and one of the most important centers of art in the world. Throughout its history Florence went through many tumultuous periods, and its social and political history is reflected in Italian literature, most notably in Dante Alighieri’s epic poem The Divine Comedy.

Today, Florence is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It attracts millions of tourists every year who come to soak in its history, culture, Renaissance art and architecture, monuments, museums, art galleries, palaces, and gardens.

This travel guide has been put together to explore Florence following in the footsteps of Robert Langdon and Sienna Brooks, the protagonists of Dan Brown’s Inferno novel. Their journey begins at Torregalli Florence Hospital, where Robert awakens with no recollection of how he got there, and ends at Santa Maria Novella Train Station, where Robert and Sienna depart for Venice. The guide also contains subchapters providing practical information on visiting the attractions, such as official websites, which list the visiting hours, among other things.

The eBook includes the Badia Fiorentina, the Torregalli Florence Hospital, Viale Machiavelli, the Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, Dante’s House, Dante’s Church, the Baptistry of Florence, and the Santa Maria Novella Train Station.

It features also an audio version in MP3 format. You can find the MP3 files for the audio version of each chapter and subchapter of this guide available for download at no cost on a given webpage.


  • Great Addition to the Trip

    Used this last weekend as we wandered along the route of the book. Great job of explaining the sites and good information about entrance fees and hours. Even used it on our guided tour to supplement the guide’s information.
