Interesting.

Check out the gates around this area. They are metal but linked together and they float. Explains why they have been around for so long.

Although not very large, it is definitely worth stopping by the see the tomb of one of the most influential writers in history. There's a helpful information plaque that explains the significance of the various parts of the tomb. Its not a long stop, but its at least worth stopping by.

I was underwhelmed. Maybe if you have a thing for Dante, it's different. I liked the fence around the garden more than anything.

Close to the Basilica di San Francesco and next to a quiet garden, this is an interesting place to visit and not a mosaic in sight! Simply but tastefully decorated and free to view, it's an interesting final resting place for such an important Italian historical figure.

Around the corner, just to the left of the Basilica of San Francesco, this a charming place, next to a tranquil garden, where there still stands the ivy-covered mound where the poet's bones were buried for safekeeping during the second world war. From the temple door, one can see the eternal flame on the hanging lamp that is filled with... More

This was a nice stop in Ravenna and it is easy to walk around. There is a lot of history here. We came across this attraction after seeing a lot of mosaics.

If you are in Ravenna why not visit. Its very accessible at the end of the via that bears his name and great photo op. He was an amazing writer and I think its well worth the stop by and visit.
