Santa Maria Foris is located in the heart of Ravenna
In ancient times, the adjacent Via Massimo d’Azeglio was an important road because it led from the “forum” to the walls of Ravenna.
Just above the entrance to the villa, a plaque recalls the existence of a church, called precisely
“S. Maria in Foris”. It is a church that dates back to 1261.
You can read a fragment of the original marble plaque that belonged to the church, probably an architrave in which the following inscription is carved: ECCL-PS.M-FORIS-REST-MDCVII.
Today, after the renovations, it has become a welcoming “Rooms and Breakfast” where refinement and charm distinguish the 11 rooms of the Villa.
The careful choice of exclusive fabrics and design objects helps to create exclusive harmonies, one of a kind.
Just beyond the entrance, you enter the pedestrian area of the historic center where you can admire some of the 8 Unesco Monuments of Ravenna:
Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Sant’Apollinare Nuovo, the Arian Baptistery, the Neonian Baptistery, the Archbishop’s Chapel, the Basilica of San Vitale.
Just outside the historic center is the Mausoleum of Theodoric while the farthest monument is the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare in Classe, about 9 kilometers from the Villa.
Villa Foris is perfect for a pleasant vacation, a business stay, a meeting, or a fleeting weekend or a pre-cruise stay.
