Ravenna is a city in Emilia-Romagna, Italy.
Ravenna once was the capital of the Byzantine Empire in Italy, and it still has amazing mosaics recalling that heritage. The town of Ravenna is like no other place in Italy. Because Ravenna was the seat of sixth-century king Theodoric the Great, who had been brought up in Constantinople, and later, the seat of a Byzantine governor, the artistic influences here were heavily Byzantine.
