Ravenna Italy hotels tend to be large, hotel chain types-of-places that can lack individuality and charm. Fortunately, there are a number of hamlets and villages close to both Ravenna and other regional areas of interest. Many of these convenient spots have at least one authentic Italian hotel that may better suit your vacation needs.

It should be noted that most of the cities and townships in northeastern Italy are relatively close to each other. When planning your trip, opting for a hotel that is central to all your places of interest--rather than close to just one place on your whole itinerary--may make for a much more organized and enjoyable vacation. In other words, the most perfect Ravenna Italy hotels may be located, in fact, just outside of Ravenna.

Reasons to Stay in Ravenna Italy Hotels

Regardless of which Ravenna Italy hotels you choose, this city is a historian's delight, an architect's master class, an artist's inspiration. Ravenna was once the home of the strongest fleet in Augustus Caesar's armada and the capitol of the entire Roman Empire. If you're a history buff or an appreciator of medieval architecture, you'll find plenty of sites to occupy your interest while visiting Ravenna.

Chief among its attractions, however, are the Byzantine mosaics. These delicate chips of colored stone, marble and glass illuminate several of the 5th century churches located throughout Ravenna. The Ravenna mosaics are considered by experts to be the finest examples of the craft in the world.
