Discover the beauty and the wonder of the early Christian monuments


I will lead you through the wonder of the precious mosaics of Ravenna, telling you about the characters depicted, the symbols, and the religious politics behind them.
I'll let you discover and delve into the unexpected atmosphere. The radiance and colours of the ancient mosaics will allow you to feel how worshippers felt centuries ago.

Many people visited these places over the centuries. I'll tell you about some of the most popular.

Statement of Outstanding Universal Value by Unesco:
"The early Christian religious monuments in Ravenna are of outstanding significance by virtue of the supreme artistry of the mosaic art that they contain, and also because of the crucial evidence that they provide of artistic and religious relationships and contacts at an important period of European cultural history".

The tour includes the visit to the following UNESCO monuments:

- Basilica of St. Vitale
- Mausoleum of Galla Placidia

It includes, moreover, the visit to the monuments in the so-called "Dantesque area", where the Dante Alighieri's tomb is.
