Created in 2012, the Cammino di Dante is a circular route that connects Ravenna, where the Poet is buried, to Florence, Dante’s birthplace, and then returns to Ravenna following a different itinerary. In all, the circuit covers about 400 km. It’s a fantastic journey across the Apennines and Casentino’s beautiful natural landscapes, passing through delightful villages where time seems to have stopped.
If you’re a slow travel and active holiday lover, Dante’s Way can be traveled on foot or by bike. An excellent alternative is traveling by train, possibly enriching the stages with short walks in the surroundings. Public transport does not allow you to reach all the places covered by the Vie di Dante, though you can visit many of them.
Not to be missed, the little train that connects Faenza to Florence, which, in its slowness, offers glimpses of great beauty among rolling hills, olive groves, and forests.
