Ravenna was the capital city of the Western Roman Empire from 402 until 476. It was later the capital of the Kingdom of the Ostrogoths and the Exarchate of Ravenna until 751. Ravenna is is most famous for its fabulous early Christian and Byzantine mosaics. It appeals mainly to Italian lovers who have specialised interests or want to know the greater depths of the country.
