Day 1

Ravenna Guided Tour, in the footsteps of Dante

Guided tour of Ravenna, the quiet and peaceful city where Dante completed the Divine Comedy. In this place, the figure of the Supreme Poet became an object of great devotion and, on his death in September 1321, became a real cult.

The guide will talk about Dante’s life, describing his stay in the city and the circumstances of his death, the construction of the tomb and the story of the theft of the bones, as well as the numerous interventions to enhance the cultural heritage related on his work.

Arrival in Castrocaro Terme and Terra del Sole, a town in the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines, known for its spa and two unique treasures: the imposing medieval Castrocaro Fortress and the wonderful Renaissance “ideal city” of Terra del Sole.

Lunch on your own

TERRA DEL SOLE

In the afternoon we visit Terra del Sole, a unique and surprising example of a Renaissance “ideal city”. This fortress-city was founded on 8 December 1564 by the will of Cosimo I de ‘Medici, as the new capital of the Tuscan Romagna. Terra del Sole is an extraordinary example of the new urban planning model that imposed itself in Italy in the 1500s, influenced by the theories of military engineers. It boasts a perfectly preserved city wall, 13 meters high, surmounted by 2 castles. Among the points of greatest interest: the Church of Santa Reparata and the Palazzo Pretorio, which houses the helical staircase by Leonardo da Vinci in the dungeons.

Check-in at the hotel and room assignment.
