Ravenna 3-Hour Private Walking Tour
Although an inland city, Ravenna is connected to the Adriatic Sea by the Candiano canal. It is known for its well-preserved late Roman and Byzantine architecture, and has eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Your visit to the early Christian and Byzantine mosaics includes: the Basilica of San Vitale, the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, the Battistero Neoniano, the Arcivescovile Museum and the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare Nuovo. The monuments are all within easy walking distance.
During the walk along the streets of the old town, you will also get the chance to visit the picturesque Piazza del Popolo and the so-called "Dante area," the area of silence. In fact, the exiled Florentine Dante died in Ravenna on September 13th 1321. Prepare to take amazing pictures of the palaces, squares, typical streets of the old town and the picturesque and colored churches.

Excellent guide, very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in history/art of Ravenna..
We had a little trouble coordinating the time for the tour to begin because of a lie arrival of our Cruise ship to the city but our guide was very accommodating. She was limited in her ability to do the walking required As were some in our Party so she managed the group while peddling a bicycle.
Our tour was thorough and very informative. She was able to answer all my historical questions and clearly made me realize the importance of Ravenna in hour understating of Roman history. She even let me understand the relationship with Dubrovnik and Venice.
Would certainly go back again. Worth the money for anyone interested in a deep understanding of the city.
The guide was extremely knowledgeable and at the end of the tour she made a reservation for us for lunch at great restaurant and escorted us there!
