It’s hard to pick just one reason why Italy is such an enduringly popular holiday destination, but its history and its art are among the main draws for happy tourists year after year. For any traveller who is inclined towards attractions in those areas, Ravenna is heaven-sent. That’s an appropriate term to use, too, because as with most historic Italian cities, this coastal municipality in the Emilio Romagna region is dotted with old chapels - some more than a millennium old. Anyone who loves a mosaic will find Ravenna to be the finest city they ever see, as churches such as the Basilica di San Vitale and Mausoleo de Galla Placidia are adorned with colourful, spectacular tiled patterns. As you will see when you book into one of the best Vrbo vacation rentals in Ravenna, Italy there are also plenty of handsome locations in which to stay for the duration of your trip. Check out the best Vrbo vacation rentals in Ravenna, Italy.

This rental has a bit of history to it - the apartment was renovated from what used to be the ground floor of a convent! Keen sight-seers will appreciate the fact that the location of the rental puts it close to many of the old religious buildings of Ravenna, and the bright and spacious feel of the rental makes it a cheerful place to stay. There are two bedrooms, accommodating four guests, and also a pair of bathrooms as well as a kitchen and a spacious sitting room. You have plenty of choice as to where you should dine, but perhaps the best of them is the outside porch with seating and lots of natural light.
