You'll love watching the clumps of Italians gather around and chat about Dante. Look out for the cool street name and "zone of silence" sign. Lots of dogs mill about on their walkies; the whole street scene feels like a wonderful testament to living history.

It had a lovely garden and many tombs with family members placed around the grassie mound. Lots of toursits so choose a later day time to see this structure.

Just off the street and a small chapel-like building. Graveyard next door. Don't worry if you don't have time to visit it!

Great site just to pass by. Beautiful tomb located off one of the main streets in Ravenna. Definitely worth a quick visit if you are in Ravenna, plus interesting information regarding the tomb can be found on may travel sites.

The location is central (actually found it just wandering around the city). Its a small but beautiful setting. Dont' miss it because it is not major on the sightseeing lists or you will regret it. Charming.

it is a beautiful place. Located in a clean peaceful city. It is nice to visit a smaller town away from the cities. So much to see.

Pick up a free map of Ravenna at the Tourist Information and they will mark the location of Dante's tomb - a short walking distance from the TI office. Durante degli Alighieri, known as Dante - c. 1265–1321), was a major Italian poet of the Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, originally called La Comedia and later called Divina by Boccaccio,... More

Only gave it three stars because it is a small site, and not comparable to something like the Duomo. However, it is free, near other sites that you will be visiting, and it is Dante's tomb! However, Dante is not in the mausoleum, but in a sarcophagus in front of the adjacent church. It is worth visiting because, after all,... More

If you love Dante for his epic storytelling, perhaps you too will feel the fond reverence for him when you visit this small shrine. I love it that he is always a part of the ages recalled here in Ravenna. There were no flowers, tourists, or ephemera for Dante when I visited his tomb, but it is clean and well... More
