Know Before You Go
Information for cruise guests: I suggest you ask at the help desk of your ship if the shuttle bus service between the pier of Porto Corsini and Ravenna center is available. Usually this service is offered by the ship, but it's better to ask about it before. If You prefer the private taxi, this service costs around 25 € one way.
