Ravenna : Michelin's recommendations
The plain exteriors of Ravenna’s buildings belie the wealth of riches accumulated by this peaceful provincial town during its period as the capital of the Western empire and later as an Exarchate of Byzantium. The mosaics which adorn the city’s churches are breathtakingly beautiful, with bright colours, rich decoration and powerful symbolism, all of which evoke a true sense of spirituality.
