Jun 04, 2021 728

This summer Italy will launch 'Dante's Train,' a special route tracing the journey of the Supreme Poet from Florence to Ravenna. The train will take visitors from the Tuscan capital of Florence to Ravenna in the Emilia Romagna region where Dante fled in 1302 to avoid the prospect of being burnt at the stake.

The train will stop in Borgo S. Lorenzo and Marradi in Tuscany as well as Brisighella and Faenza in Emilia Romagna, following in the footsteps of the Father of the Italian language, who died in 1321. The service will be available to tourists on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 July to 10 October on board an historic 'centoporte' train made available by Emilia-Romagna (FER) railways.
