Ravenna is a treasure chest of art, history and culture, a city with ancient origins and a glorious past.
The richest heritage of mosaics in the world, preserved in the basilicas and baptisteries of the city, is a clear evidence of that extraordinary period. For their universal value and the uniqueness of their mosaics, eight monuments of Ravenna have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, namely Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Neonian Baptistery, Arian Baptistery, Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, Chapel of Sant'Andrea or Archiepiscopal Chapel, Mausoleum of Theoderic, Basilica of San Vitale and Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe. Besides the UNESCO monuments, other interesting artistic and archaeological sites such as the Domus of the Stone Carpets, the Ancient Port of Classe and Classis Ravenna - Museum of the City and of the Territory make a valuable contribution to the reconstruction of the history of Ravenna.
Traces of more recent times from the Middle Ages to the contemporary age can be equally found in the city. Some of the most celebrated monuments of these periods are the Tomb of Poet Dante Alighieri, the Brancaleone Fortress (Rocca Brancaleone), the Classense Library (Biblioteca Classense), the Municipal Tower (Torre Civica), as well as the monumental gates of the city.
