RAVENNA BY BIKE

written by Bridget Brackett

Ostuni città bianca

Ravenna has also an excellent network of bike sharing, so, if you forget your bike, you can always take a loan in an exchange point of the historic city center.

In Ravenna you can walk between bell-towers and monastic cloisters, from Romanesque to Gothic frescoes by Giotto of Santa Chiara to the Baroque of S. Apollinaris Nuovo, the last refuge of Dante Alighieri and the building which saw the loves and passions of Lord Byron.

I visited for the first time Ravenna in the month of June, with a warm sun that made you want to reach the nearby Adriatic Riviera, but at the same time made the visit in this city so small, elegant and on human scale really nice.

A tip: you can not leave Ravenna without visiting at least Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, the Basilica of St. Apollinaris Nuovo, the Mausoleum of Theodoric, the Basilica of San Vitale and the Basilica of St. Apollinaris in Classe. I will best describe this beautiful tourism interest points the next report.
