You catch glimpses of it from the main street, and access is essentially unrestricted. Good information on the tourist boards and Ravenna is good with QR codes for additional online support. Although small this is a beautifully constructed tomb with great workmanship all round, you can feel the reverence in the finished work. The Quadrarco is being restored in part,... More

The tomb is tiny, but it's Dante! Got to pay your respects to one of the greatest poets in the Western world. And it's right on the route to several other attractions.

This tiny tomb attracts its fair share of visitors and indeed at times the tour groups are queueing outside to get a brief glimpse of the interior. However, if you're staying in Ravenna the thing to do is to just wander by and then go in when the place is deserted. It helps to know a little about Dante when... More

Not much to see but a lovely quiet place in a quiet corner. The mound in the middle is interesting as are the 2 huge sarcophagi.

Interesting, but much more so if you can discover why he is so highly esteemed post mortem even 700 years after his death. Otherwise just a burial place.

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.

Simple and tasteful decorations, close to the Basiilica di San Francesco. Worth visiting, in particular if you have a deep appreciation for the work of Dante Alighieri. Anyway, it's a pity to just pass by and not stop for a moment.

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