Guided tour of the UNESCO monuments and a mosaic studio

The tour includes a visit to some of the UNESCO monuments of Ravenna. I will tell you about the historic events and characters represented in the early christian mosaics.
In late antiquity Ravenna was capital three times and this determined the history of the city, leaving a deep mark in the surviving monuments. The atmosphere that certain environments, lights and colors still give us today is extraordinary.
During the visit we will be hosted at one of the several mosaic studios in downtown Ravenna, where the mosaic techniques and materials will be shown.

Meeting point

Church of St. Apollinare Nuovo, located on via di Roma 53.

Upon request, I can also meet you at another location in the city center

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Franziska dalla Svizzera
Con un gruppo di 20 persone abbiamo visitato la cittadina di Ravenna ed i suoi splendidi Mosaici. A farci da guida Luana, competente, gentile, simpatica e molto disponibile.
Una bellissima esperienza, consigliata e della quale serberemo un ottimo ricordo.

Luana was a fantastic guide. She arranged for us to get to Ravenna from Venice then spent a wonderful day showing us that fantastic city. If you want to see those fantastic mosaics, ask Luana!
