Hidden in a quiet area, Dante’s tomb is a peaceful place that holds the remains of the celebrated poet Dante. A gorgeous monument that is highlighted in its simplicity, the tomb was built in the neoclassical style in 1780 by architect Camillo Morigia . Dante was expelled from Florence in 1302 and he spent the last 19 years of his life in Ravenna writing much of his Divine Comedy.
To the right of the Tomb, a gate leads into the garden of the so-called Quadrarco di Braccioforte, an ancient oratory hosting two sarcophagi.

Not much to see but if you are in Ravenna and are reading the Divina Comedia, you may as well drop by to pay tribute to the Shakespeare of Italy, considered the founder of modern Italian.
Interesting location with historic background. Also the condition of the location is looking well.
Beautiful experience, with a free entrance to an art exhibition based on Dante’s work.
Small but beautiful tomb. Can be quite busy.
The tomb of the great Italian poet Dante Alighieri, the author of the Divine Comedy. I, as a university student of the Italian language, took a leaf of the ivy that covers the tomb and I still keep it in my purse as a souvenir :-)
