Dante's Tomb (Tomba di Dante) is located just off Piazza Garibaldi. Dante Alighieri - "the divine poet." In exile from his hometown of Florence, the author of the Divine Comedy, died in Ravenna in 1321. Dante's tomb, graced with a marble bas-relief, is not terribly spectacular. But it's a far better place than he assigned to some of his fellow... More

A rather welcoming tomb for the Poet who was thrown out of Florence. It costs nothing and is a picturesque area. Even if you don't do the nearby museum, stop by Dante.

Don't miss this. Small but has a great feeling, just try and avoid the crowds. Florence wants him back, but Ravenna is never going to give up their greatest prize.

It was closed when we arrived but the setting around the tomb is still beautiful, and is right in the heart of Ravenna.

Walking around Ravenna we found Dante's tombstone by coincidence. An impressive monument with several explanations about the work of Dante.

This was a side visit from our Mosaic tour. It really is out of context and Dante spent little time here other than the end of his life. Dante had been removed from Florence for supporting the losing side of an interal Florentine power struggle. His last days were live in Ravenna which was only a portion of its former... More

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.
