Visit Ravenna!

Just a short stroll trough the old town to discover five UNESCO World Heritage Sites of rare beauty and deep spirituality.
Justinian and Theodora welcome you into the majestic gold of the Basilica of St. Vitale; experience the strong emotions that accompany entry into the Mausoleum Galla Placidia, where cobalt blue mosaics embrace a dome of golden stars. Accompany the Virgins and Martyrs of St. Apollinare Nuovo on their journey and stand awestruck before the elegant movement of the Apostles in the Neonian Baptistery, almost a joyful dance around Jesus, baptised in the River Jordan. Discover the refined details sculpted in the ivory of the Throne of Maximian and admire the light as it reflects in the gold and radiates throughout the Chapel of St. Andrew kept in the Archiepiscopal Museum.

Ravenna
is the only one

Ravenna represents so many stories, so many cultures, so many different mood and contrasts that it is quite difficult to know where to begin her story. Ravenna is a town to be savoured gently – either on foot or bicycle – without haste, during two or three day. One should start with a walk among the superb 5th and 6th centuries UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
