Sylvia was supposed to do the tour but arranged a substitute Cristiana due to an emergency. Cristiana was excellent, prompt, knowledgeable. She was very understanding of our family (kids age 9 and 11) and did her best to make them comfortable.

Silvia is a top-drawer guide. She's articulate, knowledgeable and personable. Brought to life Ravenna's long and complex past. Her explanation of the mosaics helped us understand not only the "art" but the history behind these masterpieces. Don't think twice about tapping Silvia's expertise when in...More

We paid 90 euros for 2 for 4 hours and shared with another couple. It would have been 100 euros for two for three hours. You meet in Ravena so add the cost to get in plus the cost of the museums. She was really good.
