RE: Things to do in Ravenna

by effeti

I think there is no better answer than the "things to do" section of Ravenna travel page.... The same for the other cities you asked for.

Travel Tips for Ravenna

Sarcophagi

by iandsmith

They lie scattered around the grounds, left there by who knows whom.
Historical remnants with a past and obviously a story. Oh that I could read Latin. You have to go around the back to see most of them, around the back of San Vitale that is. I yearned for more information but it was not forthcoming. Hopefully my enquiries will yield something but, for the moment, all I have to offer you is pictures.

Neonian...

Neonian Baptistery



Neonian Baptistery
The most ancient of Ravenna monuments, at least with regard to when building began, it dates to the end of the 4th or the beginning of the 5th century. It is a simple octagonal plan brick building with four large niches spreading towards the exterior and with the doors buried (the original level is about three metres below the present one). The Baptistery was splendidly decorated with mosaics by bishop Neone in 450. Inside, besides very beautiful mosaic decoration of Hellenic-Roman influence, several stucco-works and marble parts remain. In the middle there is an octagonal font of Greek marble and porphyry, reworked in the 16th century, which still preserves some original fragments.

If you're used to wash cloths, bring them

by Bunsch

Our hotel in Ravenna included bath towels and hand towels, but not what we Americans call "wash cloths" (a small towel used to wash one's face). Luckily, my friend had brought a supply which could be left behind in each city, and I brought Olay's excellent cleansing tissues because that's what I use back in Rhode Island. But if you're younger than we are and dislike using a corner of your bath towel to wash your face, you might think about packing something you wouldn't mind discarding after your visit.

Ravenna Center

by vysnaite

Ravenna is quite a small city, accordingly, for getting around the center by foot you won't have any problems. It's 10-15 minutes by foot from the train station. With all the things you usually want to see staying the first time - Basilica di San Vitale, Gala Placidia and other.

The only usual "tourist must see" thing you won't find there it's St. Apolinnare di nuovo that is outside Ravenna, but you can reach it easily by bus.

Basilica di San Vitale

by Avieira67

Due to the splendour of its mosaics, the Basilica of San Vitale is among the most important monuments of early Christian art in Italy. The eastern influence has a dominant role here. No longer a basilica with nave and two aisles but a central octagonal plan, surmounted by a cupola and the whole supported on eight pilasters and arches.
