A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed viewing the amazing mosaics of Ravenna with Angelalea. She was very knowledgeable and offered us a lot of insight about the history of the region and the Byzantine mosaics themselves. I have a degree in Art History and this was my third visit to Ravenna - I booked the tour for my husband - but I learned quite a bit! She also suggested some shops and restaurants which was quite helpful. Book a tour if you want to fully experience the mosaics as there is very little information in English.
