Angelalea was amazing! I'm so glad we booked this tour. We don't have the background knowledge of mosaics to really understand or appreciate it on our own and would have spent the limited time we had in Ravenna wandering around trying to figure out what to look at. She helped us to visit to the most important sites and then provided the type of knowledge at each site that made the experience interesting and personal. As both a local and former history professor, Angelalea is perfect for this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comments!

Angelalea's tour was fantastic and I would definitely recommend. We were a party of four with a lot of questions, all of which were expertly answered. We never felt rushed and I gained a great deal of knowledge as a result. Angelalea was charming and able to take questions on a whole range of periods in Revanna's fascinating history. Thank you very much for a fascinating tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Anne, to all of you, for appreciating the tour. I really like sharing my love and passion for history and the beauty of my town with guests so passionate like you!

The city of Ravenna is a beautiful gem, not to be missed! Our tour with Angelalea was remarkable and a memorable experience!!!! She is charming, highly knowledgeable and passionate. We appreciated how she pointed out the small details in the mosaics and brought these images to life. The tour was well paced but she gave ample opportunity to ask questions. Her knowledge and understanding of history brought context to each site. We highly recommend Angelalea...she is an excellent guide!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi, thank you so much for your great words! It was my pleasure to be your guide to my town's mosaic treasure and I hope to see you again, here in Ravenna! All the best

I read through Angela's reviews before confirming our tour and everything that was written was true! Angela, whilst passionate about the treasures before us, always managed to find the right balance of history to share that made it not only interesting but also extremely engaging. Another aspect that I enjoyed besides her charming company was the fact that we did not wait in any single line and that was thanks to her "skip the line" approach. We would highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great review, Cleopatra!Grazie infinite per le tue belle parole!

Angelalea is informed, charming, thoughtful, and an excellent guide and highly qualified. Her English language is accented but very clear, and her comments on the history and culture were magisterial. We have some background (both professors, I teach art history) but her knowledge and command of facts enriched everything we saw. Complimenti, Angelalea! We highly recommend her to guide you; she also clearly enjoys her contacts and offers so much to you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, grazie mille! it was so lovely to meet you

Angelalea was a wonderful guide and we would recommend her extremely highly. She is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and has a vast store of information about Ravenna and the sites. She was also very flexible in our itinerary and communicates very well. You will be quite happy and will learn a lot if you take one of her tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words!

This was an excellent way to visit the principal sites in Ravenna. Angeleala was very knowledgeable and brought the imagery in the mosaics to life. The historical context was excellent. We chose a Scottish 3 hour tour which was a perfect introduction for our teenage sons... not overwhelmed with detail but lots of interesting information. Angeleala was a charming and engaging guide and I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. I so much enjoyed guiding you around the town! All the best Angelalea

Most people skip Ravenna while going on their grand tour of Italy. But this is a big mistake, because while one can see great paintings anywhere, there is only one place in the world to see truly great mosaics: Ravenna. And there's only one guide whom you want to show them to you: Angela. I've used many guides all over the world, and have yet to find one who's better. She's warm, enthusiastic, and so knowledgeable. Skeptical? Just go to Ravenna and book Angela. You will never, ever forget the experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was so nice to meet the two of you and I am happy you enjoyed our beautiful town and its extraordinary mosaic heritage! My best wishes, Angela
