From the capital of the Roman Empire to the Napoleonic domination, passing through the lordships and the papal state: Ravenna is one of the emblematic cities of Italian history and art.
Palazzo Bezzi, a stone’s throw from the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare, offers a luxurious and elegant stay in the hub of the city. A position incomparable to other hotels.
Ravenna centre allows you to travel in time alongside Popes, kings and emperors.
The mausoleum of Galla Placidia, commissioned by Emperor Honorius in the fifth century, is just a few steps from the most famous of the Ostrogothic funerary constructions: Mausoleum of Theodoric.
The ensemble of the first Christian monuments of Ravennais considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This explains why Palazzo Bezzi is the hotel in Ravenna that combines comfort, culture and elegance.
But that is not all. Not far from our hotel is the tomb of the “Sommo Poeta” or Supreme Poet.
Ravenna, however, was not only the city where Dante found his end, but also a crucial place of inspiration.
In the extraordinary beauty of the Byzantine mosaics the Supreme saw the source of various passages of his Divine Comedy.
In Dante’s verses we can easily recognise, for example, the depiction of the mosaic in the apse of Sant’Apollinare in Classe. The reference in Canto XIV of Heaven is evident.
Pala De Andrè
Between a basilica and a museum, you will also have the opportunity to spend an evening at Pala De Andrè, one of the best equipped venues in Northern Italy.
Named after Marco De Andrè, Faber’s brother and manager of the Ferruzzi group, the arena is used to host events of all kinds.
The Ballet Nacional de Cuba, the dance of Svetlana Zakharova, the Electronics Fair or Caparezza: whatever your passion may be, it will certainly be found in the selection of Pala De Andrè.
The city of volleyball
Sport is equally important in the daily life of Romagna’s capital city. Volleyball is predominant.
In 1918 during the First World War, a US contingent of 377 men settled in Porto Corsini. The American military taught the people of Ravenna the game of volleyball.
If Ravenna is today considered the cradle of Italian volleyball, it owes much of it to this page of history.
In the 90s, in fact, Pala De Andrè was the setting of the three Champion Cups won by the glorious Porto Ravenna Volley.
Comfort and relaxation in your hotel in Ravenna
After the excursus on the location and the wide range of opportunities offered by Ravenna, the time has come to focus on the characteristics of our Hotel.
