School trips to Ravenna

“When I want to understand Italian history I catch a train and go to Ravenna. There, between the tomb of Theodoric and that of Dante, in the reassuring neighbourhood of the best manuscript of Aristophanes and in the less reassuring one of the best portrait of the Empress Theodora, I can begin to feel what Italian history has really been”.

Arnaldo Momigliano

Guided tours for school groups

I guide tours in Ravenna for schools of all types and grades, designed according to the age and background of students.

Ravenna, three times capital city

Ravenna represents a crucial moment in the history of the West between the 5th and 6th centuries. Here students will get to know the stories of the protagonists of that era as they walk through the city’s early Christian monuments and admire the glittering mosaics that still adorn them.

What my guests say

  • Lori

    Luana’s presentation was thoughtful, thorough and packed with a love and true appreciation of ancient history. We are huge fans of historical tours but Luana’s tour far exceeded our expectations! There are simply not enough glowing words… Luana è una su un milione!

    Luana’s tour was honestly one of the best I have ever done. Ravenna itself was a delight; but really made it come alive was her storytelling and in-depth subject knowledge. Heartily recommended! 

  • Marina T.

    Luana ci era stata suggerita caldamente da amici che l’avevano conosciuta durante una visita precedente. Le aspettative non sono andate deluse. Anzi… Luana è la guida perfetta… competente, garbata, curiosa, attenta e disponibile. 

  • Chris Griifhts

    A wonderful way to be introduced to the World Heritage sites. Personal interactions are best. Thoroughly enjoyable tour. The time was perfect, 2 1/2 hrs. Luana has an extensive knowledge of the sites & excellent English sense of humour

    Luana was a wonderful guide. I had been before but learned so much more on this trip. Luana was so informative, knew so much of the history and background, but was also charming, helpful, spoke excellent English and never made us feel rushed. I would highly recommend a tour with her.
