Transportation: “Dante’s Train”: you will travel with a “slow” train that since 1893 has been connecting Florence with Faenza via Borgo San Lorenzo, Marradi on the regional “Faentina” railway line, and from Faenza connects up to Ravenna. A journey of 150 km, about three hours of travel with stops in villages and towns among forests, hills and the countryside, crossing many viaducts and tunnels reaching up to 537m above sea level. Thanks to this evocative itinerary, Florence and Ravenna will forever be linked to the life of the Supreme Poet. This is the reason why we named it “Dante’s Train”.
