From Florence to Ravenna

Follow in Dante’s footsteps from Florence to Ravenna, slowly crossing the Apennines between Romagna and Tuscany, immersed in nature and culture.

This route stops off at the places where this great Italian poet lived in exile; a journey among ancient buildings, Romanesque churches, small villages, museums and libraries, craft workshops and unspoilt nature. Take the small train that runs between Faenza and Florence (via Marradi), enjoy a bike ride along the ancient Via Faentina, or even head out on foot along one of the many hiking trails between Ravenna and Florence. Itineraries and experiences covering the seven Italian municipalities of Florence, Scarperia and San Piero, Borgo San Lorenzo, Marradi, Faenza, Brisighella and Ravenna, offering a wealth of monuments, traditions, identity, food and wine along the way.

Dante’s route allows tourists to discover Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, introducing them to the values and common features shared by the people here, not to mention their friendliness, authenticity and spontaneity; here, tourists can expect to find an innate vocation for hospitality, the good life and conviviality. Timeless beauty and charm, wonderful locations and an ability to bring together tradition and innovation, culture and entertainment, quality and value for money.
