This is a great place to go to the beach if you like people watching. Party, party, party in the summer months. Life truly is the beach in this place.

but, it includes some great frescos and the tomb of Dante.

Two of my brothers in-law live and work here.

The district of Ravenna lies in the north east of Italy, some 80 km. from Bologna, regional capital of Emilia-Romagna.

The Guglielmo Marconi international airport at Bologna is some 90 km. from Ravenna. From the airport you can get to Ravenna by car (all motorway) or by train, a journey which takes between 1 and 2 hours. Other airports, including Forlì (Giacomo Ridolfi) some 30 km. from Ravenna, and Rimini (Miramare), 60 km. to the south, are less than an hour's drive away. The major airports in Milan (Linate and Malpensa) are abuot 4 hours down the motorway, while Rome airport (Leonardo da Vinci) can be reached in 5 hours and Venice (Marco Polo) in about 2 hours).

The quickest way to get to the district of Ravenna is by car. Three motorways lead down from the north: the A21 Turin-Piacenza motorway and the A22 Brennero motorway. The latter two feed into the A1 motorway at Piacenza and Modena; the A1 joins the A14 "Adriatica" motorway at Bologna and will take you right to the Ravenna tool-station, or to Faenza and Cesena exits (if you are heading for Cervia Milano Marittima).
