Bologna to Ravenna -- Driving

How long does it take to drive to Ravenna from Bologna? I am thinking of a day trip to Ravena to see the mosaics, and wondering if it should be over night at Ravena, or can it be easily done in the aftrnoon and then come back to Bologna for FOOD! Thanks!

Just an afternoon is not enough, but you can go in the morning and come back in the evening, in time to have dinner in Bologna.

the trip is around 1 hour 1/2 depending on traffic.

I agree with Nurioopta, take the train. When I was in Ravenna it took me about a day and a half to see the various mosaics, and I did not visit St Apollonaire in Classe which was undergoing restoration at the time. You can get good food in Ravenna as well.

Ok thanks! Think we will stay in Ravenna instead of coming back to Bologna. The lodging in Ravenna seems to be a lot more reasonable too.
