  • 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 :-)
  • Loreena McKennitt Lyrics "Dante's Prayer" When the dark wood fell before me And all the paths were overgrown When the priests of pride say there is no other way I tilled the sorrows of stone I did not believe because I could not see Though you came to me in the night When the dawn seemed forever lost You showed me your love in the light of the stars Cast your eyes on the ocean Cast your soul to the sea When the dark night seems endless Please remember me Then the mountain rose before me By the deep well of desire From the fountain of forgiveness Beyond the ice and the fire Cast your eyes on the ocean Cast your soul to the sea When the dark night seems endless Please remember me Though we share this humble path, alone How fragile is the heart Oh give these clay feet wings to fly To touch the face of the stars Breathe life into this feeble heart Lift this mortal veil of fear Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears We'll rise above these earthly cares Cast your eyes on the ocean Cast your soul to the sea When the dark night seems endless Please remember me Please remember me
  • Pretty cool, quite busy but possible to see inside and spend a few minutes admiring.
  • Small tomb but famous man.
  • Very small but charming place. If you are in Ravenna, do it!
