A fortified city, with bastions and thick walls, towers and forts. Thanks to a dozen gates and many historical piazzas, in Ravenna it is still possible to discover traces from the Middle Ages and the Risorgimento.
The monumental gates of Ravenna still represent the access points to the historical centre and are often reference points of walks in the pedestrian areas of the city: they are traces of the history of the city, holding its memories and beauty.
From the Roman Empire to the World Wars, they still show their importance as keystones around which the urban streets continuously developed.
As soon as you pass the gates, you will discover the piazzas of Ravenna, the true parlours of the city. Meeting points of society, local traditions and good food, they host the main artistic and cultural events all year round.
