During this brief period of time, late Romans, Ostrogoths, and Byzantians left their mark in the form of architectural wonders that still define the town.
Today, Ravenna may seem a bit sleepy when walking on the streets, but the interiors of basicilias, baptisteries, churches and mausolea compensate for this with their rioutous colours of fine mosaic. Ravenna is a cherished destination for another reason too, as the resting place of Dante.
The town is compact, with short walking distances between sights, and a combined ticket offers great value for the casual visitor.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
