with Cinzia F.

Cinzia F.

A full day guided tour to enjoy the best of what Ravenna has to offer. A 5/6 hours guided tour visiting the Early-Christian and Byzantine mosaics of the 5th and 6th centuries. You can discover the Ravennate Basilicas and not only.
The Tour includes:
Church of S.Vitale commissioned by the Emperor Justinian from Bisantium. In the mosaics he is masterfully depicted with the beautyful wife Theodora.
Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, charming and strong empress of the Western Roman Empire
Neoniano Baptistery close to the ancient Cathedral and decorated by wonderful mosaics
Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo which was the private chapel of the Ostrogoths King Theoderic.
Basilica of St Apollinare in Classe Astonishing 1500-year old Basilica that was built when Ravenna was Capital of Byzantine Bishopric.
A walk through the old city centre with a pause and a practical demonstration of the mosaic technique in a nearby workshop, enjoyng the history but also the quiet rhythm of life in town.

I am not a driver but I can arrange for a private car or bus. I wil be happy also to give suggestions for a good lunch in town (that will be extra).
