Ravenna among the 10 best "art & culture" holidays of 2021 according to the Times
The web edition of the British newspaper Times has elected this Romagna town among the 10 unmissable art and culture destinations for 2021 for its surprising ascent from "swampy stretch of the Adriatic coast" to "political and religious fulcrum of Italy".
Perhaps thanks to the sparkling breathtaking mosaics of the early Christian basilicas of Ravenna in stark contrast to the "dark" history of the British Middle Ages?
A destination to add to your list, so you are ready as soon as you can go back to travelling.
