In Italy, the Dante Train traces poet’s journey from Florence to Ravenna

Vintage train takes a slow journey through the landscapes of Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.

This summer Italy has relaunched 'Dante's Train,' a special route tracing the journey of the Father of the Italian Language from Florence to Ravenna, every weekend until 1 November.

The vintage train takes 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 Supreme Poet, who died in 1321.

The service runs on Saturdays and Sundays until 30 October, with special trip on 1 November, on board an historic centoporte train made available by Emilia-Romagna (FER) railways.

Travellers will be able to take bicycles aboard and can get off to visit the villages, castles and hills that the great poet passed through more than seven centuries ago.

The train service, which covers 136 kilometres, was introduced last year on the 700th anniversary of Dante's death.
