Ravenna is considered all over the world the Mosaic's Capital thanks to its 8 UNESCO buildings, perfectly preserved, with colorful mosaic's decorations made between the Vth and VI century A.D. during its golden age. The mosaic technique is still retained in this city thanks to the mosaic schools that allow students to learn the secrets of this extraordinary art. During the tour we will visit a mosaic workshop run by a skillful team of artists and teachers and you will explore an unknown niche of the world of art.
Silvia is born and raised in Ravenna where she attended her studies of language and mosaic art. Since 2000 she works with passion as a national tourist guide. A lover of art and good food, a tireless traveler, she chooses a profession that can make her feel like traveling even from home, meeting visitors from every corner of the world and ambassadors of different cultures. Based in Ravenna, Emilia Romagna, but with the heart in Sardinia, her tours make people feel her love for her Country and the desire to transmit it to visitors. Always looking for new destinations and itineraries out from the beaten path, through the virtual tours Silvia will make you discover not only wonderful cities and breathtaking landscapes but also the goodness of the typical local food prepared at home with love, bringing on your tables the original made in Italy flavor.
