Guided tour in Ravenna - mosaics, chocolate tasting and lunch (or a snack with an aperitif)
A Tasting of Ravenna!! Not only gorgeous Mosaics but delicious specialties. Let's me take you to discover Romagna and Byzantine Food Tradition!
Let me take you on a guided tour in Ravenna's city centre to see our stunning Byzantine world heritage - the Basilica of St Vitale, the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia and the Basilica St Apollinare Nuovo with their extraordinary light-filled golden and multi-coloured mosaics.
Then if you feel a bit peckish and your breakfast is a vague memory, time for a pause! We will stop in a lovely chocolate shop, owned by same family from many generations. The lady owner will offer you a sweet taste and I will tell you stories about them and their delicious products.
Then we'll take a walk to Dante's Tomb and the Piazza del Popolo, our "Venetian" Main Square, and to end the tour we'll take a lunch or a snack with an aperitif in a local Osteria or Piadineria. You will be enchanted by our Romagna Tagliere which includes piadina (the ancient local bread), Squacquerone Cheese with caramelized figs, salami of Romagna, Prosciutto DOP, Mortadella Bologna and local wine .
