If you come to Ravenna, you will no doubt visit here; recommend you have a guide to explain all that you are seeing. The history and story are quite remarkable, which is why it's a World Heritage site.

This was our first trip to Ravenna and we were really taken by the mosaics. Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo was particularly beautiful. We found it very interesting that even in knowing these are mosaics, the pictorials have dimension and don't appear as flat as you...More

This is another church in Ravenna with unbelievable mosaics. It is a little off the beaten path but it is well worth the extra 10 minute walk to visit it. Mosaics line both sides of the church. Very beautiful!

The initial challenge was finding the 5 properties that are part of the ticket package, but walking around is great exercise in Italy. The attention to detail and the history associated with the church is a testament in the quality of the art work created.

This was the first place we visited after leaving the train station and it was by far the best. The mosaics are breathtaking! The fact that it wasn't designed as a church added to the appeal. The mosaics were untainted by renaissance additions and the...More

Built by the Ostrogoth King Theodoric in the 6th Century, using recylced marble columns from a pagan temple, they seem to make the long nave seem longer and harks back to the original Roman basilicas that were used for business and dispensing justice. Above the...More

The long nave mosaics above superb capitals are a must see to get an idea of what an Early Christian church was like. Though the figures are rather large, binoculars are handy to see details.

I liked it less than the basilica San Vitale and the Mausoleo di Galla Placida, but it's difficult to rate such impressive and beautiful monuments. The mosaics are very detailed and full of stories. This is definitely worth going, and it's part of the 5...More

The mosaics are beautiful. The more modern decoration is also nice. The simple Romanesque architecture is also interesting for those used to more elaborate Gothic or later churches. It is one of the Unesco monuments in Ravenna and it is worth seeing. The visit does...More
