The capital of the declining Roman Empire, Ravenna was one of the cradles of Christianity. The stunning mosaics of its basilicas and baptisteries bear witness to both the pomp and bucolic dreams of the early Christian imagination. At the crossroads between East and West, this seafaring city, from which you cannot see the sea, has managed to preserve the discreet charm of its historic centre, a pleasure to explore on foot or by bicycle.
