Instructions on how to reach Marina Romea and Ravenna from all over Italy

How to get to Marina Romea and Ravenna

The Columbia Hotel is located in the centre of Marina Romea, in the main square “Piazza Italia”. While driving on the S.S. 309-Romea (the state highway), coming either from the north or the south of Italy, you’ll get to a sign indicating “Marina Romea”– follow it and, after the new roundabout, take “Via delle Valli”, a road that’s situated between the Lamone River and the northern part of the pinewood and our valley (the wonderful “Piallassa della Baiona”).

When you get to Marina Romea, drive down the main road on the seafront until the square called “Piazza Italia”: you’re here!
