Best known for its amazing collection of Byzantine mosaics – including the mosaic of Empress Thoedora – Ravenna is one of Italy’s most important cultural capitals. In addition to many 5th and 6thcentury churches, Ravenna is also home to the tomb of Dante Alighieri who died there while in exile in 1321. And when you get hungry, take advantage of the extraordinary cultural traditions of Ravenna, which are characteristic of the Romagna half of the Emilia-Romagna region in which it is located. Fresh pasta, seafood, and a good red wine known as Sangiovese di Romagna. Buona visita!
