How to Find the Best Ravenna Hotels with Hotels.com

A jewel of northern Italy, Ravenna offers Roman, Byzantine and medieval heritage in a charming setting close to the coast. For travellers with an interest in architecture and history, Ravenna is a fascinating destination. The mosaics in particular are outstanding examples of artistry, preserved through 16 turbulent centuries. Some of Ravenna's buildings and interiors are among the most beautiful in Italy, with the churches among Europe's oldest, eight of them featuring on the World Heritage list. Hotels.com has partnered with Ravenna hotels across the city to provide visitors with a great selection of the best value Ravenna rooms, whatever their budget or location specifications.

What's Ravenna Like?

Ravenna's history includes spells as capital of the Western Roman Empire and of the Byzantine rule in Italy so it was a city of note, as can be seen from the architecture that remains. The main attraction is the complex of ancient buildings around the basilica of San Vitale which was constructed in the 6th century. The Byzantine mosaics remain compelling and distinctive, depicting Biblical scenes and the imperious rulers Justinian and Theodora. The Museo Nazionale contains many Byzantine and later treasures and helps visitors to understand the historical status of Ravenna. The tomb of the poet Dante on via Alighieri is a literary landmark of Ravenna, while the summer classical music festival maintains the city's reputation for refined cultural activity. Families looking for a contrast to the rich history of Ravenna might enjoy a visit to the roller coasters and theme park attractions at nearby Mirabilandia. Staff in Ravenna hotels can offer advice about the city's restaurants and travel hubs.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Ravenna

Although Italian cities usually feature the buzz of motor-scooters, in Ravenna the locals seem to prefer bikes. Cycling is an easy way to get around the maze of streets in the centre and hire shops will rent a cycle for the day or a few hours. Although the shops in central Ravenna seem exquisite, the prices can be daunting. Follow the local example and shop in Ravenna's street markets for affordable clothes and bags and in the charming 19th-century covered market for meats, fruit, cheeses and bread. Try the traditional snack of the region, piadina flatbreads with a variety of fillings. Finding the ideal Ravenna hotels is made easy by Hotels.com's search functions. Our website offers access to certified reviews by past guests and provides sample room plans, an extensive selection of photos and all the information required to identify the Ravenna accommodation that fits your needs.
