Know More about this tour

Meet your private guide in either Ravenna or Ferrara to begin this full-day tour.

Visit the historic city of Ravenna in the morning. 1600 years ago Ravenna was the capital of the Western Roman Empire, and later the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, a key town in the history of the Western world and beyond. Ravenna retains the lavish testimonials of this glorious past; in fact, the city preserves the richest world heritage of mosaics dating from the 5th and the 6th century AD, kept within its Paleo-Christian and Byzantine religious buildings, all UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Visiting the historic center on foot or by bicycle is like reliving thousands of years of history. Start from ancient Roman times with Ravenna's early Christian basilicas, through the Renaissance and up to the 19th century, when the city was rediscovered by famous visitors such as Oscar Wilde, Sigmund Freud, Lord Byron, and Gustav Klimt.

In the afternoon, head for the city of Ferrara, a splendid city of art. Enjoy walking its streets to absorb its character. The magnificence of this Renaissance capital is revealed on every corner.

Through its glorious past you can understand the roots of its present. The Este family governed here for three centuries and gave the city the appearance it has today: a uniquely planned city, harmoniously fusing Medieval and Renaissance, Europe's first modern city. It is precisely these characteristics that secured its UNESCO World Heritage status.

This private day tour will allow you to visit these 2 beautiful cities, and is a great introductory tour.
