Summary

In AD 402 the Roman Imperial court fled from Rome to Ravenna, and for a period this was the political center of what remained of the Western Empire. The result? An astonishing flowering of art and architecture created in the dying days of the Empire. To this day, the city’s numerous churches and palaces remain resplendent with shimmering mosaics.

We begin in Aquileia, a great city of the Roman Empire, which played host to emperors and archbishops. We continue to Ravenna, one of the must-see archaeological cities, where we marvel at the artistry and explore the stories behind the glittering tiles.

Tour highlights:

  • Special access to the mausoleum of Galla Placidia
  • Visit the mediaeval monastery at Pomposa, with its 14th century frescoes
  • Marvel at the extraordinary Tempietto Longobardo, a unique Lombard chapel
  • Admire the 4th century mosaic floor of the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta in Aquileia
