The tomb is located in a very small setting, nothing elaborate and not near a dusky wood. However, in very close proximity is a square which on certain days hosts a farmer's market. If you are so inclined, you can contemplate Dante's Circles while enjoying an espresso, cappuccino or wine at the cafe bordering the square.

We went exploring in Ravenna and wanted to see Dante's tomb and it was worth the time it took to wander down the side street and visit this area.

The mausoleum is a separate building, on the side of a church. It has an aura of honor and calmness, with marble and iron dominating. If you happen to be in Ravenna, do visit.

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.

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.
