VISIT RAVENNA


Dante and Ravenna Experience
Dante and Ravenna, a 700 years long blend. That is, ever since the Great Poet decided to spend the last years of his exile at the court of Guido Novello da Polenta: here Alighieri became an active part of a literary cenacle attended not only by his sons Pietro and Jacopo, but also by some local writers. Dante Alighieri died in Ravenna on September 14, 1321. The funeral was celebrated in today’s church of San Francesco, which stands right next to his tomb, designed by Camillo Morigia in the last glimpse of the 18th century.
The route winds through the places that Dante knew during his exile in Ravenna, with a parallelism with his literary journey in the three kingdoms of the Afterlife.

WHICH PATH TO CHOOSE ? (details)

DANTESQUE ROUTE (1) ( duration: about 2,5h ): In canto 5 of Inferno we meet the most famous lovers of Italian history; Paolo and Francesca. Perhaps one of the most famous episodes of the entire Divine Comedy, a story poised between noir and love, that only Dante Alighieri’s pen could make immortal in such a few verses.
Tour stops: Casa dei Polentani, Via Mazzini, Palazzo della Provincia (Rasponi crypt and roof gardens), Piazza San Francesco and Basilica (famous is the flooded crypt that can be visited), Quadrangolo di Braccioforte, Dante Alighieri’s tomb, Franciscan Cloisters with Dante’s museum.

DANTESQUE ROUTE (2) ( duration: about 2h ): This is how the Divine Comedy is concluded, written by Dante Alighieri between 1302 and 1321, and so also concludes this tour that we are going to propose.
Tour stops: Dome of Ravenna (Chapel of the Vergine del sudore), Piazza San Francesco, Dante Alighieri’s tomb, Piazza del Popolo, Palazzo Merlato, San Vitale, Galla Placidia.

CLASSIC TOUR ( duration: about 3h ): We accompany you to the discovery of the main sites of interest of the city of Ravenna through its mosaics and monuments that are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Tour stops: Basilica di Sant’Apollinare Nuovo, Neonian Baptistery, Piazza del Popolo, Palazzo Merlato, Basilica di San Vitale, Galla Placidia.

TREKKING with BREAKFAST – ON THE CARONTE RAIL (duration: about 3 hours – departure at 8.00 am): Along with the excursion in the pine forest, there is the possibility to explore the wetlands of Ravenna.  The placid mouths and the calm of the brackish valleys, a real haven of peace where flamingos, egrets and many other animal species have coexisted with man for centuries, give one of the most typical views of ancient Ravenna. To keep us company there are modern Carontes in wooden boats: local guides who know these places by heart and reveal every secret.
Trekking route (easy flat) : Meeting point at the baretto sul Lamone (Buonaventura – Marina Romea), Pialassa Baiona valley, pine forest (Porto Corsini), shoreline Porto Corsini /Marina Romea to return to Bonaventura with breakfast included.
