  • Located in a quiet area, close to the pedestrian area, the Dante Museum is located in the immediate vicinity of the tomb of the great poet Dante's centre of the Friars Minor. Very beautiful cloisters and manicured gardens, you can see icons, busts, paintings and video content. You can also see the Divine Comedy translated into multiple languages. Unfortunately the only right to silence has been repeatedly disrupted by the barking of dogs and the repeated cries of/sgrida own escorts.

  • Beautiful cloisters, manicured gardens, the video of the story of Dante and Ravenna very interesting, dogs are allowed only in the arm (I understand yet why since if dirty clean it as required by law and civics) from the Museum I was expecting something more, perhaps the manuscript of the Divine Comedy ... overall improvement, but good.
