Make the most of your visit to Ravenna by enjoying a private tour of the richest heritage of Byzantine mosaics in the world and trying local food specialties.
This half-day walking tour will begin with a visit to the Basilica of S. Apollinare Nuovo, an early Christian church decorated with wonderful mosaics, then a stroll along the charming town center will take you to Piazza del Popolo, the square with Venetian 15th century architectures where the locals gather as they have done for centuries.
You will then take a pause from monuments stopping at a famous chocolate shop where you will be offered some chocolate specialties to sample.
From there you will make a visit to the impressive Basilica of S. Vitale and the
Mausoleum of Galla Placidia , a unique treasure of mosaics.
The tour will end at a typical restaurant where you will have a small lunch
