To anyone interested in culture being on vacation Ravenna is warmly recommended. Because there he is almost on a box seat in the history of art!
The churches of Ravenna (for example the Church of Sant' Apollinare in Classe just outside Ravenna) were considered as the culmination of the late antique architecture because of its striking mosaics. Accordingly, they were often copied, for example in Pomposa where once the monks were cultivating the marshes of the river Po.
It was a fortunate incident that they did not bring this work to an end: In Comacchio nature lovers can enjoy the beauty of the river Po at its best in the Po Delta Natural Park. Herons, flamingos and even wild horses can be observed here.
