This hemicycle public square in the heart of Naples is in between Piazza del Plebiscito and Naples’ historic centre (Centro Storico) if you walk along the shopping street Via Toledo in an L-shape direction. It is named after Dante Alighieri, and it is therefore no surprise that a statue of this Italian poet and philosopher proudly stood at the centre of the square. On an obscure corner of the square is Port’Alba, a remnant of the old city gate that forms the gateway to Naples’ historic centre. Apart from some churches around the square, there’s little else to see here.

This square was located a short walk from our hotel and centrally located in Naples.

The statue in the square represents Dante who was one of Italys most famous poets.

The meaning of Dante is “steadfast” and “enduring’

It is a vibrant square surrounded by cafes and bars.

It was the starting point for our walking tour.

Originally a marketplace, Piazza Dante is a large square on Via Toledo. There is a nice monument of Dante Alighieri, the great poet and father of the Italian language.

The eastern side of the square is dominated by a large building with two curved wings. Under the clock is the huge entrance of the Convitto Nazionale Vittorio Emanuele II. It was once the convent of San Sebastiano but after the Jesuit order was abolished, it became a boarding school.

As we were going to the Duomo, we passed through the Port'Alba, one of the original city gates of Naples and continued eastwards to the Via dei Tribunali.

I am fan of Dantes Devine Comedy so seeing this piazza was quite cool. That is one massive square and it is surrounded by shops, places to eat and chapels. In the middle of square there is a big statue of Dante and I was impressed how magnificent it looks. I had a nice coffee while enjoying the crowds passing the statue by and being impressed by how majestic it looks. I had plenty of photos. You might like them.

I visited the Piazza Dante early in the morning in August 2019. I exited from the Stazione Marittima (cruise port) and took the Naples Metro (subway) from Municipale to Dante (two stops). It was around 7:45 am in the morning so it was pretty quiet and not very busy yet. There was a nice statue of Dante in the middle of the square. I think if you have a map Piazza Dante is a very good place to begin a self-guided walking tour of Naples.
