Duration

Dante in Ravenna, an opportunity to discover the events that characterized the last years of Dante Alighieri: exile, life in the city, death and the daring dispute for the remains, as well as the interventions of enhancement of the tomb over the centuries.

 

This tour will take you to discover the Basilica of San Francesco, the place where the Supreme Poet's funeral took place and in the Zona del Silenzio (Silence Zone), where his Tomb is still located today.

 

You will enter the multifunctional space of Casa Dante (Dante’s House), recently inaugurated thanks to the collaboration with the Uffizi Gallery of Florence and the Classense Library of Ravenna.

 

The guided tour will be concluded with an additional entrance to the Dante Museum, with a new multimedia setting up that took place in May 2021. It’s confirmed as the main custodian of Dante's history preserved for centuries in our city.
