    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in a central location in Ravenna to begin your 2.5-hour walking tour.

    1600 years ago, Ravenna was the capital of the Western Roman Empire, the Kingdom of Italy, and the Exarchate of Italy. A key town in the history of the Western world and beyond, Ravenna has retained the lavish testimonials of this glorious past. In fact, the city preserves the richest world heritage of mosaics dating from the 5th and the 6th century AD, kept within its Paleochristian and Byzantine religious buildings - all of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

    Visiting the historic center on foot is like reliving history. It starts from Roman times with its early Christian basilicas, through the Renaissance, and comes up to the 19th century, when the city was rediscovered by famous visitors such as Oscar Wilde, Sigmund Freud, Lord Byron, and Gustav Klimt.

    This 2.5-hour tour will visit some of the famous monuments of Ravenna, including the Basilica of San Vitale, Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Piazza del Popolo, St. Francis' crypt, the tomb of Dante Alighieri, and Basilica of Sant' Appollinare Nuovo.

    We didn't take a guided tour, but highly recommend the mosaics, which are on the UNESCO site list. You can see the evolution of mosaics from very simple to so incredibly detailed that it's hard to believe they're composed of tiny fragments.
