yellow bicycles?

by cindyfish

I have been reading about free bicycles in Ravenna - but the posts are all old. Do these still exist in 2008? thanks!!

Re: yellow bicycles?

by mccalpin

The official tourism website for Ravenna has the yellow bicycles back on least, the page was last updated in February of this year, so that's a good sign! See

Note that there is an email address on that page if you want to email them to confirm...

With only 40 yellow bikes, I would get there early if you are going in the summer...but this ought to be a lot of fun, given how flat Ravenna is ;-) . I never rode the bikes, but I noticed them in front of the IAT office several years ago as I walked, knock on wood, they're back...

Basilica of S


by Aisha

Basilica of S

Basilica of S. Apollinare Nuovo
The Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo was built in the 6th century originally as Theodoric's palatinate church. Perhaps the façade was originally closed by a four sided portico, but now it is preceded by a simple but harmonious 16th century marble portico. On the right side there is a cylindrical bell-tower of the 9th or 10th century, characteristic of the buildings of Ravenna. From the ancient building we have the magnificent mosaics with the largest surface area which has come down to us from antiquity. The processions of Virgins and Martyrs represent one of the most typical examples of the Byzantine style.

When in Rome (or Ravenna), do as the Romans do

by Bunsch

I must have led a charmed life up to this particular venture to Italy, because in all the other countries I visited, English was either one of the standard languages or, in the case of France, I spoke the ambient tongue. I suppose I expected that many, if not most, of the hoteliers and shop keepers and transport personnel in Italy would speak at least a modicum of English. I didn't invest in a phrase-book (although it turned out my companion had brought one along). What arrogance! I have only myself to blame for the multiple times when language barriers led to absurd or disappointing results. (It is hard to ask for directions when you can't articulate where you want to go -- and can't understand when someone tries to help out.)

Probably no one reading this tip would make such a foolish mistake, but just in case...either learn enough Italian to get by, or keep a phrase-book or English-Italian dictionary close at hand. I promise you'll have a more enjoyable visit.

(And as one VT'er says in a very funny motto which I will badly paraphrase, speaking English slowly and very loudly does NOT make it more comprehensible!)

Galla Placidia

by iandsmith

Were you to write a novel of a noble lady of these times (4th and 5th century) you couldn't even come close to this remarkable woman's life. Born at an uncertain date (392 seems close) in Constantinople.
It's far too long and bizarre to explain here how she evolved into a position of power but her mother died young and, to maintain power, her father Theodosius sent her step brother and her off to Milan where they set up court not long before he died.
In 400 AD she was betrothed, aged 8, for political purposes but, when she was 18 she was kidnapped by the Visigoths who had attacked Rome where she had moved to.
While they hunted for food she weaved her charms, aided by her beauty, and when the chief Alaric died a year later his brother-in-law Ataulf, who fancied Galla, took power and headed for Gaul.
Chased by Honorius (Galla's brother) they fled from place to place until Galla had her first child in Barcelona in 415 AD, tragically the same year Ataulf was stabbed to death by his stablemaster. The new Gothic king Sigeric killed Ataulf's children by his first marriage, humiliated Galla in public and abused her physically but he, too, was killed after only seven days.
In 417 AD Honorius forced his sister to marry the Roman consul Constans. Her personality overshadowed his and he descended into melancholy as Gallia manipulated him, always seeking to gain the territory her Visigoths had been promised.
She succeeded in this and had two children by Constans and she was conferred the title Augustus; but Constans died in 421.
Factional war broke out in Ravenna and Honorius feared Galla was plotting against him and sent her to Rome but he died in 423 and the Western Empire throne was vacant.
