Ravenna is the largest and historically most important city in the Romagna district. Its territory - the Italy's second biggest, after Rome - includes nine beaches of the coast.
It has been capital for three times: of the Western Roman Empire, of the Kingdom of the Ostrogoths and of the Byzantine Empire.
Due to its bright past, the complex of early Christian monuments of Ravenna has been declared Italian heritage site by UNESCO.
Ravenna is also rich in universities, libraries, museums and theaters to make even more interesting the visit to this fascinating ancient city.
