Ravenna and arounds - Relais Villa Roncuzzi

Ravenna  is a city and comune in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The city is inland, but is connected to the Adriatic Sea by a canal. Ravenna once served as the seat of the Western Roman Empire and later the Ostrogothic Kngdom. It is presently the capital of the province of Ravenna. At 652.89  km² (252.08 spmi), Ravenna is the second-largest commune in land aerea in Italy, although it is only a little more half the size of the largest, Rome.
The oringins of Ravenna are uncertain.

The first settlement is variously attributed to the Tyrrhenians, the Thessalians or the Umbrians. Ravenna consisted of houses built on piles on a series of small islands in a marshy loagoon - a situazion similar to Venice several centuries later. The Romans ignored it during their conquest of the Po River Delta, but later accepted it into the Roman Republic as a federated town in 89 BC. In 49 BC, it was the location where Julis Caesar gathered his forces before crossing the Rubicon. Later, after his battle against Mark Antony in 31 BC, Emperor Augustus Founfed the military harbor of Classe. This harbor, protected at first by its own walls, was an important stazione of the Roman imperial Fleet, Nowadays the city is landlocked, but Ravenna remained an important seaport on the Adriatic until the early Middle Ages.
