an amazing shore excursion with private guide and driver


In the morning departure from Porto Corsini to Bologna for an art and food tour.
Bologna is charming, rich, lively and delicious! I suggest you to taste the rich emilian gastronomy and to enjoy a glass of wine during the excursion. You'll see the Main Square with San Petronio (the most important church here), the charming palaces, the Archiginnasio (old university), Santo Stefano and the two towers, the real symbol of Bologna. But one of the things that I like most here is the "Cry of Stone", a wonderful group of terracotta statues, incredible, beautiful and unique!

After lunch transfer to Ravenna to see some of the most interesting buildings here as the Mausoleum of Theoderic (exterior only), the church of San Vitale, the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia and the church of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo. They all are included in the Unesco Heritage and they will amaze you with the brilliance of their mosaics or with the magnificence of their architecture.
If you are not a first time visitor ask me for a customized tour!
