Hi Agatha,

I am sailing on Voyager of the Seas, which will be in Ravenna on Mon 30th May. Since widowed, I am travelling alone, can you suggest my best option for what to do whilst in port. I have travelled alone before and am not fazed by it, I just like to make the best of my time ashore, do you think a cruise excursuion would be best or is going it alone ok? i am perfectly happy to use public transport and I like to see nice scenery and anything that shows the area to its best.

Look to your left of the posts, there's a tab for "Things to Do". The mosaics are reportedly to be awesome.

The search bar above the posts should turn up how to get from the port to Ravenna proper.

Also, you might want to post in www.cruisecritic.com

This will serve as a 'bump' too.

So happy you are planning a visit to Ravenna. Oh by all means go with the group from the ship. that way you can enjoy the city with other people. I always think sight seeing is more enjoyable with some one to share the experience.

Also there is an expeienced guide to show you the sites and also give you nice stories of the history of Ravenna.

If you would like I can send you a list of typical restaurants that you might enjoy.

After the ship tour if you want to go outside the city I would suggest you take the no#44 city bus to Classe. 5 Km from the city centre. Gives you a little view of the surrounding countryside.It was consecrated in 549. Outstanding mosaics!

If you take the tour offered by the ship a good guide will be included in the price.

If you have decided to go it alone then I will try to find yu a guide.
