We used Rick Steve's Italy guide book and it was very interesting to read the history behind Dante's remains and the symbolism... More

Only for historical reason you can take a look.The tomb is a room! You can take some photos!You will not need more than ten minutes for this monument!(Ten because you will be wait on the line with the tourists).

Dante is one of the great founding fathers of Western literature. Without Dante there's no Chaucer, no Spenser, no Shakespeare, Milton, Dryden, Austen, Dickens etc. It's a humble monument to a man whose legacy lives on today

We couldn't skip this as we had to pay our respects this great artist and innovator. It would be like being in London and bypassing Shakespeare's tomb. But the tomb itself is nothing special.

Dante's tomb is rather non-descript for all the hullabaloo. What looks to be his tomb is actually NOT. Make sure you find the one that has his name on it. The church next to it with the ancient nave in the front (sunk in water with fish!) is a lot more interesting.

You can't come to Ravenna without visiting Dante's Tomb. It is extremely well refurbished and maintained. The museum is very informative and laid out well which makes it easier to understand the poets life. Well worth the visit!

We stumbled upon this by accident, on our way to the Basilica di S. Giovanni. I was excited that it was free to the public, to just come and see and enjoy. It was a beautiful peaceful place.

Dante's remains are interred in a small sepulcher at the end of a quiet street. An eternal flame burns over his tomb. Fun and bizarre fact: During WWII, the poet's bones we re-interred in the adjoining park for safekeeping.

A quiet and relatively tourist free corner of town, this little green and fragrant tomb was a lovely surprise.

Not a lot to see but a pleasant square to visit with adjacent bar and quality jazz. Would definitely go to the adjacent square again.
