Why visit Ravenna Since the beginning of the 5th century A.D. Ravenna has been the capital city three times: in the last stages of the Western Roman Empire (402-403), during the reign of the Goths of Theodoric (493-526), and finally under Byzantine rule (553-751). The magnificence of that period has left the city with a great legacy of monuments: eight buildings are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
