Ravenna is a relatively small city in Northern Italy but it has a lot of history! I visited Ravenna back in 2014 when I was studying art history in Venice. Ravenna is home to important late Roman and Byzantine architecture and eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Ravenna is home to some of the most amazing mosaics in Europe and is definitely an under visited city! If you’re visiting the area and wondering what there is to do, here is little guide for you!
If you’ve seen my Ultimate Venice Travel Guide then you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE Venice! I’ve spent a fair but of time there and I’d go back in a heartbeat. My travel guide was very long with lots of info so I tried to keep the photos to a minimum. But I have so many that I want to share still so this is a little photo diary of my memories of Venice at sunrise and sunset, two of the most peaceful and beautiful times of day in the city.
A city like Padua is one of the reasons why I love Italy so much. It’s beautiful and charming with some amazing artistic and cultural heritage for a relatively small city. I’ve visited twice, the first time just as a day trip and then overnight. Although I haven’t spent too much time exploring I have rounded up a list of some of the best things to do in Padua.
Burano is a small island in the Venetian Lagoon and one of the most colourful places in the world, it’s also one of my favourite places in the world. Historically Burano was a small fishing village and is known for it’s lace making.
Venice holds a special place in my heart. In 2014, I had the opportunity to study for a month through a special art history program at Queen’s University. Then I returned in 2016 as an intern at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Now I’m sharing my ultimate guide to Venice because it’s not the easiest city to navigate, so get ready because it’s a long one!
