more interesting around the grave
Feb 2021
The grave itself is not so special ( too modern), but the church and the surroundings are nice. Tourism office is around the corner, which is very practical.

Try to come at sunset
Oct 2020 • Couples
A nice park with a tomb where often verses are cited at sunset - and a bell rings 13 times at sunset in memory of Italy‘s maybe greatest poet. The grave has an interesting history as Dante, banned and death sentenced in Florence, fled to Ravenna and died there - but his remains were later claimed by Florence and hidden secretly by monks close to the tomb.

Of course you visit Dantes Tomb when in Ravenna yet it is not a very special one. Building surrounding makes visiting this Tomb a must.

The street signs require "quiet" near the tomb
Dec 2019
This is a modest, elegant stone tomb that draws you in with its simplicity and, of course, the poet's words. The city of Ravenna is gearing up to celebrate 700 years since his birth. The neighborhood surrounding this well-maintained monument is walkable and worth exploring.

Beautiful Tribute to Italy's Poet
Oct 2019
This is tucked into the end of a quiet street. It is not large but it is well done and a great monument to an amazing poet. It is well worth seeing and also the grounds around the back of the tomb.

Our guided tour gave life to the story of Dante's three burial places
Nov 2019
Our guide told us the story of Dante's remains having been moved to hide them from the delegation that came from Florence to reclaim them. Then the bones were moved again to safe guard them from the ravages of war. Understanding the story made the visit much more enjoyable.

Small building but well worth going.
Sep 2019
This is a small building that houses the remains of one of the giants of Italian literature. It is definitely worth having a look.

Get in touch with the genius
Sep 2019
A small monument marks the genius of Italian literature. Dante is to Italians the same as Shakespeare to the English! Allegedly, he lies under a heap of earth with ivy on it. A bell at dusk honours this important figure of the worldwide culture every day.

Dante & Ravenna
Sep 2019
The Tomb is at the end of a little cobbled street and is very impressive as is the Cerberus next to it.

There is often a queue to view the interior of the Tomb but it moves quite quickly and then move on next door to the Quadrarco di Braccioforte, an ancient oratory, which contains several sarcophagi and the mound in which Dante’s bones were hidden for safe keeping during World War II and reinterred after the war was over. There are information boards outlining the brief history of Dante.

Dante’s Tomb, the Courtyard, Quadrarco and the Franciscan cloisters, where Dante’s Museum is located, are all in the Zona del Silenzio (Silent Area) an area of quietness and respect for Dante and the departed.

Dante’s funeral took place in the Basilica di San Francesco just around the corner and well worth a visit.

Entrance to the Church and to view the interior of the Tomb are free.
