Art tour of Ravenna from Bologna

Ravenna: a treasure of the Mediterranean: A hidden world of mosaics and underground crypts, the absolute pearl of art of Emilia Romagna region.
Several populations estabilished on the sandy Adriatic coast. This endless territory of marsh, wetlands, lagoons, swamps, despite being partially unhealthy, turned out to be the perfect shelter for a craddle of civilization. The pines of the coast started to be exploited by romans to build their undefeatable fleet.
Our tour will be as rich in detail and complete as possible, in order to let you dive into this golden age, and let you travel back in time with your mind and your senses.

      Incredible the surprise, welcoming us, after this full immersion into the mosaic tiles, precious stones covered with glass paste and bright colors, set in the millenary red clay bricks: an underground crypt, subject to flooding due to the subsidence of the soil (a structure that reminds us to the Basilica Cistern of Istambul).

      Stop At: Mausoleo di Galla Placidia, Via San Vitale, 48121, Ravenna Italy

      our last Unesco site of this great tour, a tomb of the sister of the Byzantine Emperor Onorio. The light filters accross the alabaster glasses, the golden atmosphere spread out all around the inner walls and domes.
