This fortress is a great example of more modern architectural additions to Ravenna. Unlike most important tourist attractions of Ravenna, this fortress was built much later, in the 15th century, by the Venetian Republic (ruling in Ravenna at that time). It is a great chance for a break and a bit of sightseeing.
Archiepiscopal museum in Ravenna is one of the main tourist attractions of the city, because it holds numerous artifacts that had been collected after the demolition of an ancient Basilica which stood on the same grounds. This collection is enriched with other valuable objects from the early Christian church which all together compose the collection which can be seen today.
Neonian Baptistery is yet another beautiful example of early Christian art in Ravenna. Probably the oldest surviving stricter in the city, it is one of UNESCO World Heritage sites as well as an important tourist attraction.
Porta Adriana is one of the surviving gates that together with the protective wall once served the defensive purposes of the city. It is left to visitors and their imagination to put together all of the pieces of this structure and imagine the whole fortress in its previous beauty.
