About
Take a wander through the last capital of the Western Roman Empire, the capital of the kingdom of the Goths and the Byzantine exarchate. On this self-guided audio tour, you'll also get a taste of the power of the great republic of Venice as well as the 19th century Italian Risorgimento, all the while accompanied by some of the most famous mosaics in the world in the presence of many UNESCO heritage sites. The tour starts in ancient Rome, with the mausoleum of Galla Placidia and then takes you after the fall to the Basilica of San Vitale. We then head through the middle ages to the 19th century, as we move to Piazza del Popolo. Afterwards, we head back to the time of the Gothic domination with the Baptistry of the Ariana before going to see an elaborate cover-up operation in the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare Nuova. Finally, we pay a visit to the mortal remains of the great poet Dante Alighieri, father of the Italian language.

Great concept and clear audio explanations
Oct 2020
An excellent concept using an App and going around on a self-guided tour at your own pace. Very clear audio and instructions on the app with the ability to let you know if you get lost or stray far away from the tour path!
Unfortunately, the Ravenna Rome to Byzantium tour requires paying for additional entrance fees to various sites and landmarks and these tend to shut by early evening so consider touring no later than 4pm to give yourself enough time for Ravenna.
