Wait. What?! Nuns live here? This is a nunnery?
Yep. And I stayed here, too, for my first — definitely not my last — week in Florence!
A sign near the gate says that so-and-so, a friend of Dante Alighieri, owned this villa and Dante visited. Dante Alighieri! THE Dante!
Dante lived 1265 to 1321. So, this Villa is that old. Molto vecchio!!
