Ravenna, famous for the richness of its mosaics, is to be considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. As you will realize joining our tours, the architecture of the Ancient Roman and Byzantine time is well-preserved and it lends a unique touch to the old town.
This small group tour (up to 14pax) is led by a local, professional English speaking guide, that will aim to show you the best of the city while walking the cobblestones streets.
Before Rome, in fact, Ravenna was at the same time capital of three kingdoms: the Western Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire in Europe, and the Kingdom of the Goths ruled by Theodoric. The coexistence of these three different realities in a single town, deeply characterized Ravenna indeed, and the peculiar influences show above all into the architecture and the art expressions – for instance the beautiful mosaics dated VI century.
A little bit off the beaten track, the small town is away from being an overcrowded city, and tourists can enjoy a pleasant walk into the historical centre without feeling overwhelmed.
Among the main monuments that you will see, you will enter the Romanic Basilica di San Vitale and its adjacent Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, the covered market, and Piazza del Popolo.
Among the main features of this spectacular city, did you know that Dante – the National Poet Father of the Italian language – after being exiled from Florence, moved to Ravenna? And here is where he died. Do not miss the chance to visit the Area of the Silence, the quietest place of all the city, where you can visit the Dante’s Tomb, the Quadrarco courtyard and the Franciscan Cloister where the Dante’s Museum has been set.
