The cruise port of Ravenna

Cruise ship pier location in Ravenna

The cruise port of Ravenna is located in Porto Corsini, next to Marina di Ravenna, just over 12 km from the center of Ravenna and its landmarks. It is a large and modern cruise port, which you might not immediately expect in such a small place. Porto Corsini serves as a ferry port between Italy and Croatia. There is no cruise terminal building and there is not much to do in port. Besides a small beach, there is little to see in Porto Corsini. That is why most cruise passengers depart immediately to the city of Ravenna.
