Guided tours of UNESCO sites and mosaic studio

Explore the rich cultural tapestry of Ravenna with my guided tour, featuring visits to UNESCO-listed monuments. Immerse yourself in the captivating world of early Christian mosaics.

Ravenna’s significance in late antiquity is underscored by its triple role as a capital, shaping the city’s history and leaving an indelible imprint on its surviving monuments. Experience the extraordinary ambiance that resonates through certain spaces, illuminated by lights and adorned with colors that continue to captivate us today.

Our journey will also take us to one of the mosaic studios nestled in downtown Ravenna, offering an insider’s perspective on the intricate techniques and materials employed in the creation of the contemporary mosaics. Join me as I unravel the fascinating stories embedded in the city’s UNESCO monuments and witness the artistry of mosaic-making come to life in this immersive experience.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 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!
