How to Find the Best Ravenna Hotels with Venere

Ravenna is a city within the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, and is the capital city of the Province of Ravenna. The city began as an Etruscan settlement, and would later become the site of several defining moments in Roman history. Ravenna was the site where Julius Caesar gathered his forces to cross the River Rubicon, and would also be where Mark Antony was defeated at the hands of Gaius Octavius (who would become Augustus, Rome's first Emperor). Today the city stands as a cultural center with its many structures that date back to the Middle Ages, historic town squares, and Byzantine cathedrals. Finding your ideal hotel in Ravenna can feel overwhelming, but with the help of Venere, you can find and book the hotel just right for your budget and expectations with the aid of user-submitted hotel reviews, hotel room photo galleries, and our interactive Google maps applet.

What's Ravenna Like?

Whether you have come to Ravenna for a cultural experience or sun, sea, and sand, the city offers a little something for everyone. For a relaxing afternoon, the white sandy beaches of Bagno Arcobaleno (Rainbow Bath) will be the first port of call with its shaded terraces and bars. For the history enthusiasts, La Domus dei tappeti di pietra (The domus of stone carpets) contains plenty of exquisitely preserved Roman mosaics, and the Archiepiscopal Museum with its ancient architecture and sarcophagi offer a look back into the heyday of the Roman and Byzantium Empires. You can also find plenty of shopping streets and specialty stores around the city where you can pick up handcrafted items as well as sample some of the local cuisine.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Ravenna

Ravenna enjoys a Mediterranean climate with pleasant temperatures all year round. From June to August, the summer months experiences average afternoon temperatures of around 85°Fahrenheit, and tends not to fall below 45°Fahrenheit, even during the winter months. Although many of the Italians of this region are less likely to speak English than citizens of Rome or Naples, the locals are still rather friendly and approachable if you need help. It would still be ideal to learn a few key phrases such as "Parla inglese?" (Do you speak English?).
