A truly magnificent and important building with astounding mosaic art. Part of the combo ticket in Ravenna and worth a visit. They can all be seen easily in half a day. A must-see. The museum next door is also wonderful and non-overwhelming.

Not much else to add- worth the visit when exploring Ravenna. It is in the complex with Museo Arcivesoville.

The Battistero is one of five buildings - all within walking distance of each other - that can be visited on a combined ticket. Entry to large parties is controlled so as to limit numbers inside the building but, if there’s just a couple of you, you’ll probably find that you’ll be admitted straight away. The mosaics may not be... More

Ravenna is the site of several UNESCO sites, several of them being associated with beautiful mosaic art. There is a multi-site ticket available for €9.50. This is one of the sites included in this package. The baptistery is small and can become crowded, but it is worth the visit.

Ravenna is a must visit if you want to see the amazing mosaics dating from the early Christian and Byzantine periods. Suggest you purchase a ticket to the 5 major churches and mosaics. There are an impressive set of mosaics of the apostles and the baptism of Christ. This building was thought to have started as a Roman bathhouse and... More

As soon as you look up from the font to the dome you become aware of the exquisite workmanship that went into the building. Again, rather crowded but worth while making sure to see all round.
