From 1819 to 1821 Lord Byron shared a nearby palace with his lover, Contessa Teresa Guiccioli, and her husband, and Ravenna has been basking in the celebrity ever since. One of several establishments named for the romantic figure is a lot less poetic than its name suggests but is wonderfully located a stone’s throw from most of the sights, a few steps from Piazza del Popolo, and an easy stroll from the train station. Constant updating has given the rooms a subtly contemporary patina more geared toward comfort than character, with some welcome touches than include soundproofing and excellent lighting.
