- The pair descends through the nine circles of Hell, each representing different sins and their corresponding punishments.
- Notable figures from history and mythology are encountered, and Dante learns about the consequences of sin.
- Satan resides at the centre of Hell, and Dante and Virgil eventually climb down Satan's body to reach the other side of the Earth.
