Ravenna Transportation: 19 reviews and 11 photos
Buses are also quite comfortable to use. You should buy tickets in the places called Tabacchi (also cigarettes and stamps :)). you can buy a single ticket or a ticket depending on the duration of the time, there is a ticket for 75 minutes ride, you can take any buses in the area during that time. Ticket bought on the bus will cost you more.
In summer if you want to go to the seaside take a bus no. 60 (Marina di Ravenna~15-20 min) or 70 (passes Punta Marina, so to Marina di Ravenna ~25mins), they go quite often. Busses depart from the stop that is in front of the train station, cross the street and wait.
As most of locals use bikes, scooters, cars, so I'd say public transport especially to new growing districts of Ravenna isn't very much well developed yet. Thus to the older areas or around the center or seaside you won't have any problems.

Emilia-Romagna region is one of the most active ones in using bicycles! Maybe one of the main factors of bike popularity is that these cities are between Alps and Apennines on the flat land which makes moving by bike comfortable and easy. City bike culture is typical to cities like Modena, Ravenna, Ferrara, etc. A bicycle is a mean of transportation for daily activities, without the matter in age, bicycle types, special clothes - nobody cares about that in the city! It's just an extend to your feet! :) Way to go!
Center, old town - pedestrian, feet or bicycle. Car, busses, motorbikes, trains for going elsewhere.

Bikes are good also for getting around Ravenna, tourist office give them for free. You just have to leave a copy of your ID document and you'll get a key from the public bicycles. Ravenna is a city of bicycles and you won't have much problems parking them.
You can also use bicycle to reach the seaside, there's a bike track at the main road, so cars won't bother you.
Ravenna is quite a small city, accordingly, for getting around the center by foot you won't have any problems. It's 10-15 minutes by foot from the train station. With all the things you usually want to see staying the first time - Basilica di San Vitale, Gala Placidia and other.
The only usual "tourist must see" thing you won't find there it's St. Apolinnare di nuovo that is outside Ravenna, but you can reach it easily by bus.
Me, but not my scooter :)
Marina di Ravenna and other seaside places especially on weekends are full, hard to find a place for a car. That's also one of the reasons why motorbikes, scooters and bikes are popular there - they take less space and can go around the cars.
It's better not to leave helmets on scooters or bikes, if it doesn't fit inside your scooter part that's under a lock, take your helmet to the bar of the stabilimento balneare (beach establishment) where you're staying and ask to keep it.
