The Best Cheap Hotels in Ravenna, Italy

Not that we go in for favourites at TravelMag – everywhere in the world’s got something worth seeing! But there’s something about Ravenna that really encapsulates what a mind-bogglingly rich travel destination Italy is. This town’s got everything: food, culture, architecture, and mosaics… lots of mosaics – it was capital of the Western Roman Empire from the 4th to the 6th Century. And despite all this, it’s still comparatively ‘off the beaten track’, meaning more authenticity and smaller crowds.

As with many town’s in Italy, hotel’s in Ravenna find space where they can and some are old town houses rather than purpose built. This means, if you’re looking for a central stay, be prepared for character. If this is less your speed, the outskirts will make a better base. We’ve rounded up the best of both to help you with your choice.
