Ravenna: UNESCO Monuments and Mosaics Guided Tour

1. Ravenna: UNESCO Monuments and Mosaics Guided Tour

Starting from the convenient meeting point in Piazza San Francesco, journey through the streets of the city center with your guide to experience five incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Neonian Baptistery, the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, the Basilica of San Vitale, the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo and the Chapel of Saint Andrew. You will have the opportunity to visit: The Basilica of San Vitale: one of the most important monuments of early Christian art in Italy. When you enter the basilica, your gaze is captured by the high spaces, the wonderful mosaic decorations of the apse and the extraordinary representation of the imperial couple of Byzantium: Justinian and Theodora, with their procession. The Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo: originally used as a Palatine Church of Arianism, today it allows us to reconstruct the evolution of Byzantine wall mosaics from the age of Theodoric to that of Justinian. The Chapel of Saint Andrew: representing the glorification of Christ in an anti-Arian key, it is the only example of an early Christian archiepiscopal chapel still intact today. The Neonian Baptistery: one of the oldest monuments of the city, made of simple brick on the outside but rich in marble, stucco, and mosaics of clear Hellenistic-Roman influence inside. The Mausoleum of Galla Placidia: it was built around the middle of the 5th century, at the behest of Galla Placidia, who ruled the Western Roman Empire. The innumerable stars of the dome have struck the imagination and sensitivity of visitors over the centuries, and of outstanding personalities such as the great poet Dante Alighieri, who drew inspiration from them for the writing of some verses of the Divine Comedy.

Our guide (Marta) was an art history major who grew up in the area. She spoke perfect English and was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. There were only 3 people on the tour, so it felt very personalized. See everything worth seeing in Ravenna in 3 hours. Incredibly time efficient and and great value. Highly recommended!

Excellent driver and tour guide (Paolo). We really enjoyed all parts of the tour. Great assistance from Paolo all the time. Nothing to complain about. Highly recommended.

Beautiful place. The tower was incredible but my gosh trying to climb it was an experience. I felt drunk climbing & descending, but what an amazing building

it was a brilliant tour. our guide Virginia was very knowledgeable and fun person. I think if you are in Ravenna you definitely should do this tour.

All went well. App is easy to use. Just you pay a bit more than on the official place.
