Ravenna, Italy Cruise Port

Ravenna is the capital city of a province that goes by the same name, which is found in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The city has a very rich history since it once served as the capital city of the Western Roman Empire from the year 402 to 476, when that empire collapsed. The city further continued to play an important role in Italy's history throughout the following years and this has led it to having eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city is located inland but it has access to the Adriatic Sea through the Candiano Canal. Listed below are some of the experiences, attractions, and activities that visitors could enjoy after cruising to Ravenna, Italy:
 
  • The city is rich in historical sites and art. One such place that visitors should consider paying a visit to, is the Neonian Baptistery. The brick baptistery dates back to the 5th century and is one of the city's oldest buildings and surviving baptisteries.
     
  • Visitors who are interested in learning more about the region's religious and artistic history should visit the Basilica San Vitale. It is among the city's top attractions, displaying an octagonal design and is one of the most important examples of Christian Byzanite art and architecture.
     
  • History buffs should enjoy paying a visit to the National Museum in the city. The structure is adjoined to the San Vitale Basilica with the museum housed in the Benedictine Monastery, and offers exhibits of artifacts, textiles, weapons, and ivories that were used from the Coptic to Renaissance periods.
     
  • Fans of architecture and history should pay a visit to the Tomb of Theodoric. It is one of the UNESCO-cited attractions in the city and the structure dates back to the 6th century, where it was planned by Theodoric himself to be the tomb he would be laid to rest.
