Dante died in Ravenna in 1321. He is now buried a rather modest but graceful neo-classical mausoleum, built in 1780. In the adjacent gardens is a small grave mound covered with ivy where Dante’s remains were kept towards the end of World War II to avoid bombardments or theft. It is easy to miss as it stands at the end... More

When your head is overfilled with beautiful mosaics, this tomb of Dante will provide relief and the affiliated mueum complex will offer information.

I really wanted to find this monument, and I was surprised that several locals didn't seem to know it was there. For such a great figure it is very understated and tucked away in a corner of this lovely city.

This is a lovely place to visit, but be sure that you know where you're going and what you are going to see before you visit. There is no information provided, and it is a bit difficult to find. All of the signs are in Latin.

This tomb was established some 600 years after Dantes death it is a little area but it just feels in some way special and historical

OK - so Dante's buried there (probably - unless the monks next door moved him at some point, which they are rumored to have done). The tomb is pretty small and not very noteworthy from an architectural standpoint. At least it's free.

This is not so much to see, which means you can se it five minutes, if there are not too many tourists. We recommend the Dante museum next door instead.

A small, well kept tomb which is Dante's final resting place. My understanding is that Florence has requested his remains many times to no avail!

I was really touched to visit the thumb of one of the greatest poets of all times. He stayed there, in Ravenna, and the city doesn't want to let him go to Florence for all these centuries behind. If you didn't know, he was exiled from Florence, and stayed and died in safer Ravenna, where he finished the "Paradise" and... More

Visiting Florence most people go to St Croce and gaze at the tomb of Dante there. Dante was a son of Florence loved but then expelled for political views that did not match those in power. He died in Ravenna without his beloved Beatrix and I thought he was buried in Florence. Not so, his lovely mausoleum is in Ravenna... More
