This lies in the shadow of S. Vitale and is very small. Visitor numbers are restricted because of its size and also to protect the mosaics from the atmospheric impact of crowds. In March, there was very little waiting but I imagine that in summer...More

This is on a much smaller scale than San Vitale but the mosaics are just as beautiful, just as stunning, but closer to you. Between tour groups it is quiet and peaceful. But there's not much time between tour groups. Take care of your footing...More

A core grouping of ancient buildings. Absolutely must see UNESCO world heritage sights. Truly amazing mosaics in both the Basilica di San Vitale and the adjacent mausoleum built by the Roman Empress Galla Placidia in the 5th century. Also right there is the National Museum...More

The Mausoleo is very close to the Basilica. Like that building, it's very simple on the outside, but once you enter, oh my..... The mosaics inside are quite stunning and why it has UNESCO World heritage status. Galla Placida hasn't been interred there for some...More

Recommend you come with a guide who can fully explain what you are seeing and put it in context, but I am sure it would be breathtaking even without the background information. We had come to see the mosaics of Ravenna's World Heritage sites and...More
