One comes to Ravenna for the magnificent mosaics but while you are here it is definitely worth the few minutes it takes to drop by the tomb of this famous Italian poet. The tomb is small and simple but historic. Don't miss it.

The resting place of Dante is just in a small area, which does not tell you too much. It has no mosaics but is a tribute to one if the most well known people of Italy's past. We had a historian guide us, and she brought to life the history of Dante and his fate. How his bones have been... More

Its small but historically and culturally significant and is a beautiful monument to a man who lived and died 600 years ago.

It won't be a long visit, so you have no excuse to miss it. The fact that such a lovely monument was erected for a non-royal man of his time is a testament to his importance to the Italian people.

A must visit place. However disappointing and not as good as the many beautiful churches in the town. On the way between churches so worth the visit

It's not a marvelous site, admitted. It's a sepulchre (there are several places on the site, actually, where Dante was buried -- one little hill where he was placed for protection during WWII. But the sepulchre itself is worth a visit.

Nicely preserved tomb of Dante, worth a look. And turn right and then left in front of the tomb and very close is a small garden where you can have a quiet time and eat a picnic perhaps. Also a lovely small church. Then with your back to the tomb, walk forward to a main street and on the corner... More

A must for Dante aficionados, otherwise, take a quick peek if you're passing by the area but no need to go out of your way. Very small so only a few people at a time and don't overstay your visit to be courteous.
