This church is home to an absolutely stunning mosaic work which is well worth the very short train trip or cycle ride from Ravenna to see. I would suggest the train option, as the cycle route is not exactly attractive. There are cafes nearby once...More

Another UNESCO World heritage site. Consecrated in 605 AD and again a mix of Byzantine Mosaic and Roman Christian Art and a beautiful space. It really depends if this is your thing, but a visit to Ravenna almost demands you visit these sites and you...More

Such an incredible Basilica, there is no way to describe the amazing mosaics. It would be good with a guide or just read up and sit quietly and enjoy. Not to be missed in Ravenna.

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.
