Firstly we will visit to  Ravenna to explore the city's top attractions. 1600 years ago, Ravenna was the capital of the Western Roman Empire, the Kingdom of Italy, and the Exarchate of Italy. A key town in the history of the Western world and beyond, Ravenna has retained the lavish testimonials of this glorious past. In fact, the city preserves the richest world heritage of mosaics dating from the 5th and the 6th century AD, kept within its Paleochristian and Byzantine religious buildings - all of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Visiting the historic center on foot is like reliving history. It starts from Roman times with its early Christian basilicas, through the Renaissance, and comes up to the 19th century . During the tour you will see some of the famous monuments of Ravenna, including the Basilica of San Vitale, Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Piazza del Popolo, St. Francis' crypt, the tomb of Dante Alighieri, and Basilica of Sant' Appollinare Nuovo. Next we will visit to Rimini where start our tour from the Arch of Augustus, travel to Piazza Tre Martiri – the forum which has kept its function of a local market throughout the century  and a few steps away is piazza Cavour - the political center of the city. This piazza is today surrounded by 3 historical buildings: Palazzo Garampi, Palazzo dell’Arengo, and Palazzo del Podesta, as well as the 18th-century Pescheria. You then visit the Malatestian Temple, one of the most representative examples of the Italian Renaissance. Whilst there, stop at The Surgeon’s House - an Ancient Roman domus hosting a taberna medica. Finally, pass the Tiberio’s Bridge to reach an old village of San Giuliano. Next we will visit the Italia in Miniatura, the miniature theme park enjoyed each year by over 400,000 visitors. The historical heart of the Park is made up of 273 Italian and European architectural wonders, all scaled down in great detail and set among a lush greenery, in a large open-air exhibition covering a total 85,000 sqm. Next we will visit to the San Marino, the fifth smallest and arguably the most curious independent country in the world, added to the UNESCO Heritage List, where we explore the historical heart of oldest republic in Europe. Founded in the 4th century, this scenic enclave sits 2,296 feet (700 meters) above sea level on Mt. Titano in the Central Apennines Mountains. The historical center of the republic is a living museum and visited by millions of tourists from across the world. We will walk along the narrow streets and cobbled alleys, passing through squares and around churches. Will visit the Piazza della Libertà, the main square, with its Town Hall and Basilica of St. Marino, and head up to the medieval First Tower, rising from the top of the hill.You will need to climb lots of steps up to the tower, but you’ll be rewarded with an extraordinary panoramic view of the Apennines Mountains and the Adriatic Sea from the top. Despite its small size, San Marino also boasts thousands of stores and boutiques that make shopping here a real pleasure — especially as it’s tax-free. After we return to Bologna.
