"and thence we came forth to see again the stars" Dante Alighieri

A nice short walk in the so-called "Zona del Silenzio" (Area of Silence), that encompasses the places of Dante in Ravenna.

Discover his memorabilia, his tomb, the basilica of his funeral with the suggestive flooded crypt and revive the atmosphere of Ravenna at the times of the Great Poet, father of the Italian language.

Be inspired by Ravenna, as happened to Dante, who wrote some cantos of the Paradiso impressed by the enchanting mosaics.

And, for the sweet tooth, we can end the visit tasting an Italian ice cream with the flavors dedicated to Dante.

Starting from September 2020 to September 2021 Ravenna will host several events dedicated to the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante. Feel free to ask for the program!
