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.

When in Ravenna, this is a great place to visit. Very classy and quiet nook in which to reflect on the life of Dante and his poem the Inferno, one of history's great poetic works.

Hidden in the centre of Ravenna is the inconspicuous memorial to Dante. Honestly, I did not remember that Il Sommo Poeta is buried in Ravenna, so it was a touching surprise to run into it when walking through town. The oil for the lamp in the small memorial is ceremonially provided every year by the Comune di Firenze, a late... More

We went there to pay homage rather than out of interest on a tourist route. Dante is actually buried in the grave yard next door to the mausoleum.
