Ravenna Italy Cruise Port
Location:

The new dock is located at the Porto Corsini waterfront, between the yacht marina, the beaches and the pine forest. A beautiful natural setting that perfectly matches with the cheerful and vibrant atmosphere of Marinara, the biggest yacht marina of the Adriatic sea. Next to the cruise ship dock you will find a beautiful beach and a small town. During siesta (1pm-4pm) the town however closes completely. If you take the small ferry (1 euro) from Porto Corsini to Marina di Ravenna you can visit the Marina and a few fish restaurants.

The port is at least a 20 minute drive from Ravenna.
Shuttle (sometimes free) buses are run between the port and the city. Taxis are around 20 euro one way. A few taxis are available.

You will be able to walk to the beach from the dock.
