Ravenna

What to do

#1 LA PIADINA, RAVENNA'S STREET FOOD - Lunch in Piazza del Popolo, seat of the Town Hall: aperitif in one of the bars in the square, and then lunch at the Piadineria in via IV Novembre. This is the area of the shopping and period houses. Walking is a convenient way to get to the most vibrant area of the city: the Basilica of San Vitale. Do not miss the "new" archaeological site of Domus dei Tappeti di Pietra.

 

#2 DINING - For dinner in via Mentana 33 there is the Melarancio. On the ground floor where the tavern offers good dishes and wine to the sound of music; in the restaurant on the first floor the dishes are refined. For lovers of wine and history there is a way to satisfy both passions at the Ca 'dè Ve'n Wine Bar. It is located on the ground floor of Palazzo Rasponi, a 15th-century palace fortress. First, it was a residence for several generations of the family Rasponi. It became an inn with the name "Osteria della Corona" in the 18th century, then a renowned grocery store (Drogheria Bellenghi) and eventually became a wine bar in 1975.

#3 CULTURAL GEMS - The Basilica of Sant 'Apollinare Nuovo and the wonderful mosaics; the complex of San Francesco, with the church (spend € 0.50 to illuminate the crypt in the water with goldfish and you will be thrilled), the Dante Museum, the Poet's tomb. A few steps away is the Archbishop's Square with its treasures.

 

#4 BIKE TO THE SEA - Between Ravenna and Cervia, there is a 29 km cycle path immersed in the green of the pine forest, which allows you to visit places of extraordinary charm: among them the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe and the Mausoleum of Theodoric. If you don't want to ride back, you can put your bike on the train (Cervia-Ravenna 19 minutes).
