The Cappello occupies one of the most interesting Renaissance buildings in Ravenna. Situated in Via IV Novembre at number 41 (formerly the Fish Road, then Via Urbano Rattazzi) at the corner of Vicolo Casa Matha (formerly of St. Michael). The popular tradition was born that there was Francesca da Polenta, wife of Giangiotto Malatesta, the unfortunate lover of Dante's Divine Comedy, but the palace of Guido Minore da Polenta, his father, was at Port Ursicina (now Porta Sisi) and above the house, present location of the hotel, is back almost two centuries. It dates back to the fifteenth century at the time of the Serenissima rule over the city (1431-1509). The building is a perfect example of classical Venetian architecture: the warm shades of terracotta is pleasantly contrasted by the white marble balcony with small columns, with two pine cones stacked on the corner pillars, supported by curved shelves. Even the door is the marble walls, with fine Renaissance-style decor and so is the jambs of windows. As in other houses of the Venetian period, the gable side, facing the alley, is not sharp, but broken. In the corner edge there is a marble pillar with capitals. Our city is one of steps required of the classic Grand Tour, the tour of the main areas of interest in art for art and culture of Europe, traveling to training young people from good families of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Waking up in the atmosphere of one of the 7 exclusive rooms of this extraordinary historic residence completely renovated and enjoy the services of high level of the structure, is an incomparable pleasure. The Restaurant and the Cappello Winery are available for lunch, dinner and appetizers, you can take breakfast in the dining room or directly in your room and we offer you the opportunity to park your car in a garage near, to make a holiday without thoughts. The hotel has got 3 Meeting Rooms equipped for conferences, events or business meetings; the largest can accommodate up to 100 people. You can also ask for the buffet service. Hotel is situated in a great location: a short walk will immerse you in the history of a city that has been a cradle of civilization and modern Western culture. Ravenna hosts 8 monuments that are UNESCO world heritage, almost all within walking distance from the hotel. Besides the classical monuments, the city offers several alternatives: museums, cultural and gastronomic events, nature trails and also the beaches.
