At Rome airport there is a train to main station, then take a train to Bologna and then to Ravenna.
here fares and timetable
http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html

By car it's easy, from Rome to Orte and then straight (E45) to Ravenna

If you did not buy the air ticket.. have a check for a ferry :-)

RE: RE: how to get to Ravenna from Rome

cgf is right to consider alternate methods. Ravenna is much closer to Venice, where a lot of ferries come in. Oddly enough, I am not sure it would help to take a ferry to places farther south like Brindisi, because the rail connection from Rome is better than along the east coast...however, you might look at ferry destinations farther north (Ancona?) and check the rail connections after that.

If, indeed, you are committed to coming to Rome, there is the Leonardo Express (train) from Fiumicino airport (you are coming to Fiumicino as opposed to Rome's other airport (Ciampino), aren't you?) which takes you to Roma Termini, Rome's main train station. Then, as cgf said, you can use www.trenitalia.com to plan a route to Ravenna, going by rail all the way.

I don't know where you are from, but Ravenna is well worth the visit, being an island of Byzantine art and architecture from the late Roman Empire.

Travel Tips for Ravenna

visit basilica di San Vitale -...

by vysnaite

visit basilica di San Vitale - inside wonderful breath taking mosaics, dating 6th century. Loved also Gala Placida, small, full of mosaics and sarcofags, but wonderful. Nice Italian style old town with central square, other nice places. Tomba di Dante – Dante’s grave. Mausoleo di Teodorico , guess the name says it all, I liked it. Also you can go to the ruins , or wall that is left from his palace, climb there into the tower, and I guess it’s the only place where you can really take a very close look at the mosaics, and it’s for free. Basilica dello spirito Santo, Battisimo Neoniano, ecc. Basilica di San Francesco – mosaics, but the interesting thing that you can take a look there at the real mosaics, original ground, under the water, as Ravenna was flooded and the ground level of all the buildings like that is under the water.
The picture - inside Basilica di San Vitale.
At first mosaics seem like East-Byzantine carpet on the ceiling. Then you look more carefully and see wonderful little stones of different size, shape color , finally they blend into fantastic images each telling different stories.
Some trees without leave, palms and magnolias stand like it was summer - that's another story :).

Mausoleum of Galla...

Mausoleum of Galla Placidia



Mausoleum of Galla Placidia
Galla Placidia (386-452), the sister of Honorius, the Roman Emperor who moved the Postal Codeital of the western empire from Milan to Ravenna, built this little Latin cross plan Mausoleum around 425-450. It is famous today for the splendour of its mosaics. The exterior is very sober, contrasting with the magnificence of the interior decoration, the most ancient in Ravenna. Mosaics cover the walls of the vault, the lunettes and the cupola. The iconographic themes developed in the decorations represent the victory of life over death, in accordance with the funereal character of the building.

romagna region - try piadina

by vysnaite

Piadina or Piada is a traditional bread (I wouldn't call it bread, it's more like french crepes, just different taste, or a long lean pancake made of fat, water and flour) very tasty one, culinary tradition of many centuries here. You won't find it in most of other regions outside Romagna.
You can eat piadina without anything else, you can it with cheeses and/or vegetables, such as spicnaci, you can even eat it with nutela!
Crescione - if we are talking about piadina here, crescione would be a bended piadina, closed, stuffed inside (with anything you choose).
Piadina could be brought to you in any traditinal cuisine restaurant at the begining while you are waiting for a meal as an appetitizer, in this case it will be sliced. Or you can buy it in special places as a main meal, kind of kiosks , white ones with green vertical lines, choosing it as you prefer.

The train from Bologna took...

by wctryltd

The train from Bologna took about 1.5 hours - and cost US$6. I didn't rent a car the entire time i was in italy and didn't miss it.
Ravenna provides free tourist bicycles. Details on how this works follow:
Go to the tourist info center (located near the center of the city - follow the big ? signs) -they are open until 7:00pm. You show them a passport or drivers license, they take a photo copy and then give you a key.

Once you have the key, you look for an available yellow bike that is locked to one of the tourist bike stands (near the tourist center - i think there is another near the train station). Each bike has two locks on it - one lock holds the bike to the tourist bike stand (this is the lock that the tourist center gives you a key to).

A second lock works with the cable lock (that is attached to each bike). Once you have removed the bike from the tourist stand, you can use this cable lock to lock the bike up anywhere while you are using it.

The bikes all have tubeless tires, so flats aren't a problem - i did find that i wanted to raise the seat - if you brought an adjustable wrench with you, it might be possible to raise and lower the seat. The bikes are single speed with bike racks on the front and back.

Each bike must be returned to the tourist stands by 7:00pm (although i don't think that there is much of a penalty for not returning the bikes).

Mausoleo di Teodorico

by Airpunk

The mausoleum of King Theodoric the Great was erected in 520. It consists of two floors, with the sarcophagus of the king situated in the upper one. It is not clear, if there were outside stairs (as of today) or if the upper floor was not accesible to the public. During byzantine rule, the mausoleum was tunred into a christian oratory and the remains of the King were removed. Today, only the sarcophagus can be seen.

There’s a small entry fee, something like 2,- EUR. Unfortunately, there’s not much to see, except from what I told you about, but at least, some boards will show facts about the life of the king and the history of the mausoleum. In 2006, the site was in progress of reconstruction.

By the way, King Theoderic was King of the Ostrogoths. His state arose during the decline of the roman empire and lasted for a few decades until it was conquered by the Byzantines. Although Theoderic is sometimes seen as a Barbarian, he was an admirer of the Roman civilization.
