Tourist information on how to get to Ravenna by bus and car.
Ravenna is a gem of a city nestled in the peaceful plains which lead you to the Adriatic Sea; as a matter of fact, the historic centre is located only 8 km away from the sea. The geography of this land is truly enchanting thanks to the lush surrounding countryside, which is a treasure trove of mouth-watering food and which gradually leads you to nine beaches, three north and six south of the harbour canal.
How do you reach Ravenna by train? Not directly, if we consider the main train lines: if you are coming from most of the larger cities, you'll have to make one or more changes.
Therefore, it's best to show you how to reach Ravenna by car, as without a shadow of doubt, vehicles represent the most convenient means of transport. The best option is the motorway, as it's the fastest route on the Italian road network: from Bologna or Rimini, it's best to take the A14; from Rome, the Superstrada E45 and from Venice the Strada Statale Romea.
With regard to the last option, it's worth highlighting the artistic and cultural value of Pomposa Abbey, an authentic 9th century gem located in Codigoro, in the province of Ferrara, half way between the city of departure and arrival.
