Ravenna was an important Roman harbor and port. It is known for wonderful ancient mosaics from these early Roman days. The best thing is to buy a combination ticket to see all of the sights then make sure you have a good map of Ravenna showing the locations of the 6 buildings with the mosaics in them. There are other buildings that also have mosaics which don't require a ticket to see them. My personal favorite was the Mausoleum of Glalla Placidia with wonderful blue mosaics. The Tomb of Dante is also here. One danger is the local bike riders. Most of the locals seem to get from one place to another on bicycles. They meet in the square to converse with friends but on the sidewalks, they will run into you and you have to be very careful and get out of their way. They evidently don't like tourists.
