We were in Ravenna for the day off the cruiseship. I found info on the tomb on Trip Advisor. Hidden away in a quiet area but well worth the look. We just walked straight in and were surprised at the beauty of the it. No one rushes you and people wander in and out. If you are in Ravenna check... More

Dante's tomb is beautiful in its absolute simplicity. Such a great man and such a beautiful monument. Many lesser men have been given greater monuments - perhaps the greater the monument the lesser the man?

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
