A lovely place to stay, raised above its natural level by the friendly, helpful hostess. We could walk to everything (except the seaside, and there was a bus for that) and then easily pop "home" when our feet needed a rest. Breakfast was delicious, and different every day. And the recommendations for dinner were spot on. Good thing we did... More

Dear Gingergra, thank you so much for your wonderful review about Galla Placidia b&b! I'm glad you enjoyed the tranquility of my home and of the city even if in those days there were still many tourists on the streets of Ravenna! I only regret not having been able to give you the room with en-suite bathroom, because, when you... More

Very nice b&b in a beautiful city. Recommend Green Room with a nice terrace. Well situated within the old town but in a very quite street. Gabriella is very friendly and - first of all - breakfasts were excellent, much exceeding our expectations ;-)

My daughter and I only had 2 nights in the Green Room and wish it could have been more! Gabriella was a great hostess and served an outstanding breakfast, even fixing us one to go when we had to catch an early train. It was an easy 20 minute walk to the train station and just down the street from... More

Dear Virginia, thank you very much for the nice review. I'm glad that you enjoyed staying at the Galla Placidia b & b.

We left Venice by car with no firm destination and called ahead to Galla Placidia hoping for a last minute booking. We were not disappointed, Gabriella rushed home from a day out to make up a room for us and we had a wonderful day and dinner in Ravenna, arriving at the B&B around 8pm. You will be very happy...

We stayed for 4 nights at Galla Placida and can't recommend it highly enough. The Green Room and the terrace is beautifully decorated and so quiet, cosy and comfortable it felt a shame to leave and explore Ravenna!

Planning to visit the UNESCO World Inheritage Mosaics and cycling in the environment we stayed for one week in the very pleasant and charming B&B Galla Placidia run by Gabriela. We were warmly welcomed by Gabriela with a drink and she provided us with all types of information on mosaics, bike renting and other practicalities. We stayed in a large,... More

We too found this an absolute gem and Gabriella a jewel! It seems that the green room with its own terrace weaves its spell over everyone who stays there - we too fell under its spell though heavy rain on our second day limited use of the terrace! The breakfasts are everything you read about in the reviews and more!... More

Like the mosaics of Ravenna the Galla Placidia B&B shines brightly. Past reviewers have described the Galla Placidia accurately - friendly, clean, quiet etc. So if you want to stay in a good little town, see sites of world importance, and a have great place to stay then go to Ravenna.

Having always stayed in hotels when holidaying in Italy, we will investigate staying at B&B's in the future based on our experience at this B&B.
