Not a lot to see but as this was just a few minutes from the hotel we went to see it. The gardens next door are lovely and worth a visit to go somewhere cool and green on a hot day!

There wasn't really anything to see but a small, attractive, pavilion. Certainly it is worth the 50 steps off the main street to look at it, but only for a minute unless you want to worship at the shrine of genius.

Well, I think everyone visiting Ravenna will want to stop at this place. Although it is smaller than we expected, it deserves a visit as a sign of respect for the 'poet'.

I'll admit right now that Dante does not mean a lot to me personally. I certainly understand and appreciate his incredibly central role in the development of literature and language in general. But his tomb, though attractive, is not spectacular to see in and of itself. The attraction is free, and because all the major sites in Ravenna are close together, it's unlikely you would take more than 15 minutes out of your day to visit this site.

If you are a lover of Dante, then this site might mean much more to you. It might even be a moving experience. I appreciate that, and would heartily recommend a true appreciator of Dante to stop by and pay your respects. But if you are not, like me...then unless you've got lots of extra time, don't make put this at the top of your list. See the magnificent mosaics of Ravenna first.

(As a side note, many of the reviews here mention the crowds. We were in Ravenna in late August, and Italy overall was packed with tourists. But when we stopped by the tomb, there were less than 10 other folks in the vicinity. It's next to a small, but shaded little park that has its own mildly interesting history...so based on OUR experience, this is actually a place to get a little quiet and shade.)

To be honest, there's not much to see, for me it was very emotional because I love Dante's work and it was my wish to visit his tomb and pay my respect.
