A route in the town centre, where there is a high concentration of Unesco World Heritage Sites, a thematization of history, art and culture in one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, three times capital: of the Western Roman Empire, the Ostrogothic Kingdom and the Byzantine Exarchate.

exploring Ravenna on foot and visiting the most important sights in a few kilometres is made even more pleasant by walking through the greenery in the main town parks.
