Ravenna

Discover Ravenna and its region

Today 2.8 billion cubic meters of gas are produced in Italy, 50% of which come from the Adriatic offshore Ravenna. 

Ravenna is considered also capital of the Mediterranean Energy zone because many important projects for renewable energy are being developed in the region. The first and most important offshore wind farm and an innovative floating solar park will be built offshore Ravenna. Eni has installed and launched an innovative system capable of transforming the energy produced by waves into electricity, also adapting to the different conditions of the sea so as to ensure high continuity in energy production. In addition, CO2 capture and storage facilities have been designed. A site of European interest has already been created using steel structures from SIC disused platform Paguro, which attracts thousands of divers every year.

A CHARMING CITY

Ravenna is rich of monuments and mosaics from its glorious imperial past.

Over the centuries Ravenna has provided inspiration to artists such as Klimt, Lord Byron and Dante, who also found shelter here.

Home to 8 UNESCO world heritage sites and a lively cultural scenario, nowadays the town is a pleasant quiet city to wander where to enjoy the real local feel. 

Ravenna and the whole Romagna region are ideal for a holiday or a short break at any time of the year and offer everything necessary to make every leisure and business trip something to remember: sightseeing, nightlife, modern facilities, excellent cuisine.

For centuries Ravenna was the privileged meeting point of East and West, of Byzantium and Rome, continental populations and Mediterranean traditions. The port of Ravenna is still one of the most important at European level, just like it was in Roman times (port of Classe built under Emperor Octavianus Augustus.)

 

Ravenna province offers culture and business opportunities but also long beaches, bustling bars, modern spa resorts, golf courses, relaxing pinewoods, rolling hills with vineyards and charming small villages.

Between the blue of the Adriatic and the green of magnificent pinewoods, you find clean, orderly beaches which spread over 35 km. Each of the nine seaside resorts has its own identity but they all have excellent hotel service, good restaurants and beaches with extensive facilities and services.

The peaceful reserves in the area are ideal to enjoy the rare and unspoilt beauty of nature on foot, canoe or bike.
