Fantastic tour of Ravenna.
keith_w, Aug 2023
Elisa, our tour guide, was equally pleasant, knowledgeable, charming and enthusiastic about the history of Ravenna. She took her time and helped us thoroughly explore each of the sites visited. Through her explanations, we were able to form an understanding of how each building was constructed and updated throughout the ages. The architecture, mosaics and beauty of Ravenna was brought to life. If visiting Ravenna, we'd strongly recommend this tour. And we hope you'd be fortunate enough to have Elisa as your guide.
Wonderful walking tour of Ravenna.

Peter_W, Oct 2021
I had wanted to see these mosaics since I studied them at school 48 years ago, and I was not disappointed. Elisa Cornacchia, my guide, spoke excellent English, knew her subject well and communicated it in an interesting manner. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Elisa, we had a very informative tour of the beautiful mosaics in Ravenna. Not only knowledgeable of the mosaics, but helped us with places to eat and visit. Very much appreciated the extra effort.
Unbelievable, Remarkable, Gorgeous Mosaics. Exceptional Guide.
Edgar S, May 2019
Elisa, our guide was fluent in English, very knowledgeable regarding Ravenna, art and history. We have had other guides, other places, but she is Exceptional, probably the best we have ever had. The tour is well planned. The mosaics really are stunning..it was a 40 years life dream to see Ravenna and we finally did! Elisa went the extra mile to help us, meeting us and with other questions we had. Thank you, Elisa!

I absolutely loved my tour of the beautiful Ravenna. Elisa was the ultimate professional. Her knowledge was quite extensive and her love for her hometown was evident. I saw stunning array of sites, one more beautiful than the next. The stories about Dante were so interesting! Thank you so much, Elisa, for a wonderful day.

David G, Feb 2018
Really great tour. Would suggest it to anyone visiting Ravenna. Elisa the tour guide really knows her stuff. The mosaics themselves are amazing. The advantage of a guide was she was able to point out details to show how they had been changed over the years and explain the different symbols

Francis C, Dec 2017
We had a wonderful half day exploring the Byzantine mosaics of Ravenna with Elisa, our local tour guide. She met us at the train station, and it was a short walk to the first of 4-5 sites with well preserved mosaics. They were spectacularly well preserved, and Elisa did a great job explaining the history or Ravenna, the different periods when the mosaics were done, and the explanation of many of the Christian symbols that most of us do not understand today. Well worth the effort to get to Ravenna for this tour.

This tour was truly eye-opening. Our guide,Elisa, was able to bring the multi-layered history of the art and architecture to life. She made its symbolic content clear to our untutored eyes, patiently explaining the larger meaning of these mosaic masterpieces. I will not soon forget this experience.
