Ravenna --1 night or 2?

Jump to last reply

We have a week in Venice, and then we want to stop in Ravenna on our way to our next base in northern Tuscany. After a week there, we'll end up in the Lakes area before flying home from MPX. I know us well enough to know that when we leave Venice it won't be at the crack of dawn--mid morning is more like it. When we leave Ravenna we'll have about a two hour drive that day to our base for the next week.

So, do I need one night or two in Ravenna? One night would leave 6 nights/5 days in the Lakes area, and two nights would leave 5 nights/4 days in the Lakes.

I visited Ravenna forty years ago, right out of college, and I can remember the mosaics were lovely but that is all I can remember. Plus, I am well acquainted with the notion of church/museum/art overload where at a certain point your brain just can't take any more in and appreciate it and everything runs together. So, how much time? Thanks.
