Santa Maria Foris


Santa Maria Foris is located in the heart of Ravenna.

In ancient times, the adjacent Via Massimo d’Azeglio was an important road because it led from the “forum” to the walls of Ravenna.

Just above the entrance to the villa, a plaque recalls the existence of a church, called precisely

“S. Maria in Foris.” It is a church that dates back to 1261.

One can read a fragment of the original marble plaque that belonged to the church, probably an architrave in which the following inscription is carved: ECCL-P-S.M-FORIS-REST-MDCVII.

Today, after renovations, it has become a cozy “Rooms and Breakfast” where refinement and charm distinguish the 11 rooms of the Villa.

The careful choice of exclusive fabrics and design objects help create exclusive, one-of-a-kind harmonies.

Just beyond our entrance you enter the pedestrian area of the historic center where you can admire some of Ravenna’s 8 Unesco Monuments:

Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Sant’Apollinare Nuovo, the Baptistery of the Arians, the Neonian Baptistery, the Archbishop’s Chapel, and the Basilica of San Vitale.

Just outside the historic center, however, is the Mausoleum of Theodoric while the farthest Monument is the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare in Classe about 9 kilometers from the Villa.

Villa Foris is perfect for a pleasant vacation, a business stay, a meeting or a fleeting weekend getaway.



At Villa Foris you will find a range of services designed to ensure comfort and convenience during your stay, whether for pleasure, tourism or business.
