10 minute stop to see the tomb and attached court yard with a bit of history hidden down a side street,also museum alongside. It is on the tourist map given with your tickets.

Dante, expelled from Florence despite his literary achievements, was buried in Ravenna. At first, his body was interred in the small piece of ground currently just behind the (newer) marble monument built by admirers later on. There were crowds of schoolchildren around the marble tomb,...More

Located in a quiet corner of Ravenna I thought that the little park beside the tomb was lovely. The building itself where the tomb was located has a small viewing area spoiled by people taking an inordinate amount of time taking photos. Oblivious to others...More

This was something I was looking forward to seeing. We pushed through the church to get here before the bell toll. I imagined a great tomb for a great man. Worth the visit but keep expectations at the middle.

The tomb is tiny, but it's Dante! Got to pay your respects to one of the greatest poets in the Western world. And it's right on the route to several other attractions.
