Mosaics Grand Tour
The art of these tiny pieces can shape a town. This tour lets you experience how mosaics can craft masterworks. Starting from Milan, a city that hides some wonderful examples of this art in two of its main churches, we will then move to Ravenna, the capital of mosaics and a UNESCO World Heritage site, with eight listed monuments. Here you will find many charming objects made from mosaic, the perfect handmade Christmas present! The journey will follow the Adriatic coast, passing through Venice, where the gold of the mosaics is reflected in the lagoon. We will finally land in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, where the towns of Aquileia, Grado, and Trieste preserve superb mosaics dating back to a time spanning from the fourth to the eleventh centuries.
