Visit the most ancient Republic in the world, San Marino, and Ravenna, the mosaic capital.
This is a true delightful full day excursion :

Your walking tour will start from Piazza della Libertà, heart of the tiny Republic of San Marino.

The square overlooks the Republic’s Western territory and the region of Montefeltro. Here you can stop to greet the 1896 statue of Lady Liberty before seeing the exterior of Palazzo del Governo (Governmental Palace), the seat of San Marino’s Grand Council.

Just above the square lies the neoclassical Basilica of San Marino. Here, time permitting, you can also have the opportunity to see the Changing of the San Marino Guards.

At the end of the guided tour you will have ample time for your independent lunch and shopping. Collectors may buy unique coins and stamps of the Republic, but if shopping is not your scene, then why not visit the Church of San Francesco or, paying a small fee, have a San Marino stamp in your passport?

We proceed onward to Ravenna for a visit to the most important monuments of the city, the Basilica of Saint Vitale and the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia.

The Basilica of Saint Vitale is renowned for both its choir and its mosaics. It represents a fine example of Byzantine architectural genius and the beauty and richness of its marbles and mosaics are simply stunning.

Nearby in a small chapel is the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, sister of Rome’s last emperor. A real jewel in the crown of Ravenna, the mosaics here date back to antiquity, although it may not appear so because their colors are so rich and vivid.

Piazza del Populo

Piazza del Popolo is a large urban square in Rome. The name in modern Italian literally means "People's Square", but historically it derives from the poplars (populus in Latin, pioppo in Italian) after which the church of Santa Maria del Popolo, in the northeast corner of the piazza, takes its name.

The piazza lies inside the northern gate in the Aurelian Walls, once the Porta Flaminia of ancient Rome, and now called the Porta del Popolo. This was the starting point of the Via Flaminia, the road to Ariminum (modern day Rimini) and the most important route to the north. At the same time, before the age of railroads, it was the traveller's first view of Rome upon arrival. For centuries, the Piazza del Popolo was a place for public executions, the last of which took place in 1826.
