A Recent Review of this tour

Cinzia was the perfect guide for our 3-hour tour of Ravenna. She gave my husband and me a clear resume of the history and highlights of the city's development, supplemented by detailed explanations of the amazing mosaics in each of the main monuments we visited. We also enjoyed her numerous anecdotes that made the city's historical personae really come alive. We highly recommend this very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable guide.
