Unesco World Heritage

In Ravenna is a Unesco site with no less than eight World Heritage monuments.

Built between the 5th and the 6th century a.D., they testify a period of greatness, during which Ravenna — crossway between the East and the West — became three times capital.

As soon as you visit the Unesco monuments, you will see the beauty that in a remote past inspired many poets and visitors. The sparkle of the golden mosaics and the harmony of their architecture amaze still today thousands of visitors.

Museums and Libraries

In Ravenna, most of the museums and libraries are inside huge and ancient monasteries.

Originally, they were part of the abbey, built near the main churches of the city. Today, museums and libraries are the heart of an intense cultural activity, faithful custodians of memory.

Urban Art

Contemporary creativity in Ravenna finds expression in many ways. Art is not just in its monuments, but also in the piazzas, streets, courtyards, gardens and on the house walls. Unusual tours show the beauty of Ravenna’s urban art to discover today’s inspiration and its ancient recalls.

From the headquarters of the city dock to the gate Porta Adriana, from the stadium to the Brancaleone Fortress: the city is a real open-air museum, with works by Italian and international artists.
