Dante’s journeys were unique, steeped in history, art and nature. Now, bespoke tourist itineraries, designed to offer travellers unforgettable days and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, retrace those ancient traditions and outstanding landmarks.

An idea for an intense vacation, immersed in a priceless “rich vein” of history, between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany. Follow Dante’s footsteps from Florence to Ravenna through the Apennines at a nice slow pace, enjoying all the local delights offered by the territory.

Aboard the Faenza-Florence train (through Marradi), by bicycle along the ancient Via Faentina, or by foot along the many hiking trails.

Florence, Scarperia and San Piero, Borgo San Lorenzo, Marradi, then Faenza, Brisighella and Ravenna: the ancient palaces, Romanesque parish churches, small villages, museums, libraries, and artisan workshops, still speak today for the places where Dante lived in exile.

Le Vie di Dante is a project of the Emilia Romagna Region’s APT Services and the Tuscan Tourist Bureau.
