Full description

Journey from late antiquity Ravenna to the Middle Ages through the eyes of Dante Alighieri with this audio guide. Take in Gothic, Byzantine, and Venetian architecture, some of the most beautiful and well-known mosaics in the world, and the final resting place of Dante Alighieri, the writer of the Divine Comedy.

Follow in Dante's footsteps to visit some of the city's many UNESCO Sites, including the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Sant’Apollinare Nuova, and the Basilica of San Vitale.

Along the way, hear about Giuliano Argentario, the James Bond of antiquity, get acquainted with Camillo Benso, one of the founding fathers of Italy, and find out what it takes to get a statue of yourself placed in the people's square.
