Dante’s Way is a great ring that crosses Romagna and the Casentino area, along roads and paths connecting Ravenna and Florence; full of references to the vicissitudes of the time, these are the places where Dante lived in exile and wrote the ‘Divine Comedy’.

The Way has been planned to avoid asphalt as far as possible and comprises trails that were once the “ridge” routes used until the end of the eighteenth century, in many cases coinciding with ancient Etruscan-Roman roads.
