Ravenna was the last capital of the Western Roman Empire, and remains a treasury of some of the world’s most dazzling mosaics and Byzantine architecture – memories of the final glowing embers of imperial glory. Ravenna is home to some of the greatest buildings of late antiquity with among the finest
surviving Byzantine mosaics. The Italian city sits just east of Bologna and attracts visitors with its innumerable early Christian mosaics, on display throughout the religious buildings and museums in its historic centre. This tour visits the UNESCO sites within Ravenna and at Classe, its port.
