Duration: Approximately 4 hours

Ravenna Italy - Half day tour of Ravenna, which is known for having eight monuments listed on UNESCO's World Heritage Sites list. All eight of these buildings were constructed in the 5th and 6th centuries by early Christians and they are well known for their mosaics.
After meeting the private guide at the pier in Ravenna, you board the Coach and immediately drive in the beautiful city center of Ravenna. Ravenna was built almost 2500 years ago and it has been a capital on three occasions (capital of the Western Roman Empire, capital of the Ostrogothic Kingdom and capital of the Byzantine kingdom). These various cultural influences over its long history has left its mark on the city and result in the character you will experience on this tour.
Your tour will start in the pedestrian zone of Ravenna where the city's eight UNESCO monuments are located. Among them you will see the Church of San Vitale which is a great example of architectural innovation due to its octagonal plan. You will marvel at the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia which is entirely covered with beautiful mosaics.
You also see the medieval Church of Saint Francis with its waterlogged crypt and the place where the poet Dante was buried when he died in Ravenna. Another of the cities treasures is the Basilica of Sant Apollinare Nuovo which was built for pagan observances but was converted to a Christian basilica when the emperor made Christianity the official religion.
In addition to exploring some of these famous early Christian sites you will also enjoy an overall orientation of the city as you walk through medieval streets filled with small shops and picturesque locations. When your tour is complete, you driver take you back to your ship at Ravenna's port.

                                     Full Day shore excursion -San Marino & Ravenna                               

Travel to the tiny republic of San Marino—the world’s oldest surviving republic, founded in AD 301 by a Dalmatian stonemason who took refuge there to escape persecution by the Emperor Diocletian.
San Marino remained a free community even during the Renaissance and World War II. It covers a total area of 23 square miles, with a resident population of 22,000. To explore this lovely hilltop city, your coach will drive about 1 hour and 40 minutes up the winding road to the Republic.
Once in the heart of town, you will walk to the Basilica del Santo. Inside are the reliquaries and religious artifacts of San Marino, the city’s patron saint, and the first Tower, which dates back to the 11th century. View the outside of San Francesco, founded in 1361, and the oldest building in the Republic. You will have a chance to purchase lunch (at your own expense) before driving back to Ravenna.
