Dante was expelled from Florence in 1302 and he spent the last 19 years of his life in Ravenna writing much of his Divine Comedy. As a perpetual act of penance, Florence still supplies the oil for the lamp that burns continually in his tomb.

I occasionally found this place during short walking before the dinner with my business partner in Ravenna. I shouted, "this is the tomb of Dante, the author of Divine Commedy!" I always visit here when I go to Ravenna on business trip.

Just as Ravenna found a place in its heart for Dante after his exile from Florence the city still keeps him in their hearts. As I I stood in front of his tomb recalling the stanzas of the Divine Comedy I prayed that Dante flew past Purgatory straight to Heaven.

This is a small spot with the simple tomb of the father of the Italian language. It is a place that made me thoughtful and humble/ Well worth the time.

Not obvious to the eye to find, but, then not impossible. Very nice memorial to a great poet. No lines and does not require a significant amount of time to see and appreciate. Well worth the effort in the old section of Ravenna which is not a particularly large area.

For Dante fans, it us inspiring to see his mausoleum and crypt. Serene setting. Glad he is honored this way.

I loved the fact it was a little hidden. It is a long walk down a narrow street and there it is. There is an iron fence at one side showing a courtyard with bronze sculptures and a small park setting on the other side of the tomb. It is a beautiful way to remember this great man.

We needed to do a little searching to find this as it at the end of a narrow street. There is no admission and that is a pleasant feature as it seems that every church in the city charges some fee. Another advantage is that you can walk right in without waiting on a line or being with a crowd.... More

On our way from Florence go Pisa, we stopped at Ravenna, although a little bit out of our way. We wanted to visit the tomb of Dante Alighieri, the master of Italian literature. It's a modest building hidden away at the end of a narrow street but it does honour to this great man of letters. A definite must see... More
