Ravenna, Bologna and of the mountainside towns of Romagna
Hi, I am glad you are visiting the website of Lato monte Guided tours! By checking this pages, I hope you can get useful hints to reserve a guided tour with me, in some of the most beautiful places of the gorgeous Emilia- Romagna. Sure you cannot miss a visit to Ravenna, famous all over the world for its early Christian and byzantine mosaics, or to Bologna, home to one of the most ancient university in Europe (founded in1088 AD).
Anyhow, Latomonte Tour Guide’s aim is to show you not only the beauty of these “big names”, but also the special charm of some smaller towns, located in Romagna (the area stretched from the Adriatic sea to the border with Tuscany): Faenza, Brisighella and Dozza. They are true hidden gems, almost unknown to mass tourism, which welcome their visitors with breathtaking views, cosy parish churches and elegantly decorated buildings.
Deeply convinced that every single site hides a special “spirit” (the ancient Latins called it “genius loci”), which distinguish it from every other place, I will be glad to show you the most peculiar aspects of every site: the mysterious details of the ancient UNESCO mosaics in Ravenna, as well as the intriguing stories of Bologna’s main palaces and the technical virtuosity of the majolicas of Faenza.
And if you think that mingling with the locals is one of the most enriching part of a trip, I will be glad to introduce you to my very special contacts: booksellers, ceramists, art collectors, olive oil producers, independent wine growers, talented actors and innovative ice-cream companies. Their work and commitment give an added value to the life of every single town-centre and listening to their inspiring stories and experiences show how a second chance gives often the opportunity to live life with renewed purpose.
