About Paradoxplace



Around Ravenna

Hotel Centrale Byron




Ravenna's friendly main square - Piazza del Popolo.  MacDonalds occupies the crenulated building at the rear despite the strength of the slow food movement in this, the home of the best cucina in Italy.


Ravenna is one of the few genuinely traffic free town centres in Italy.  The main background sound is spoken Italian - another reason Dom Paradox likes it so much! 



The cloisters of Ravenna's Franciscan church / convent.  Dante's tomb is just outside the entry gate.
