Under Ravenna's golden snow. Staying between ancient and contemporary mosaic
Minimun of participants
Ravenna is awaiting you for two unforgettable days.
You will have the opportunity to visit the Mosaic Capital illuminated not only by the golden lights of its mosaics, but also by the Christmas decorations that brighten it up, and stroll among the Christmas Huts that characterise Piazza del Popolo during the festivities.
The must-see guided tour of five of the eight Unesco sites will be just a small taste of the ancient mosaic art that characterises our basilicas. Indeed, you will be able to go inside Palazzo Rasponi, which this year is hosting one of the main exhibitions of the 7th edition of the Biennale del Mosaico Contemporaneo, and finally, you will have the chance to challenge yourself in this ancient tradition by creating a mosaic jewel together with one of our mosaicists.
A Christmas journey between ancient and contemporary mosaics.
