“What I love about Darbar is you feel you are getting the best and experiencing it with cognoscenti. There’s something magical going on that you might never understand, but is a treat to be part of. It is relaxed and never intimidating”

-Visiting Ravenna-

Ravenna is an elegant town in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy; not far from the Adriatic coast. It is most famous for its fabulous early Christian and Byzantine mosaics, which date back to the time when Ravenna was the capital of the Western Empire, then under Ostrogoth and Byzantine rule. The town's greatest mosaics have been given UNESCO World Heritage status.

The Darbar Festival will be part of the 2 month long Ravenna music festival; many of the concerts will take place in some of the beautiful churches and theatres in Ravenna. 

Make sure you take some time out for a tour of the city whilst there. For more information see the link to the Ravenna Festival's site here
