Even if the mosaics in here are not the most wonderful in Ravenna you can still this baptistry (former roman bath if I'm not wrong) Is still a must-see

As the other great monuments that witnessed the byzantine/ early christianity era this is a mandatory stop. The legend says it was built over an ancient roman thermae.

More gorgeous mosaics to complete your set when visiting Ravenna. Small and crowded of course, but worth a visit if you have the time.

A historical place, dedicated to the Baptism. Beautiful mosaics, specially in the roof. The place is small but the beauty of the mosaics invites to a visit..

Do not leave this one out. You will want to make sure you stop and admire these mosaics. It will be one of the quicker stops. I thought the area outside the baptistery was one of the nicest. I was a bit disappointed in the upkeep of Ravenna in general outside some of their incredible mosaic sites. Once you get... More

This gentle place held some lovely energy in what I saw....The Roman bath was unique to see in Ravenna. The Duomo beside this structure complements each other in a visit.

Small with huge marble baptismal font in the centre. Wonderful, richly decorated ceiling mosaic of Baptism of Christ. Love the interpretation of being immersed in water ... and the dove.

Named after Bishop Neon, the mosaics here are gorgeous. Try to avoid the tour groups as they allow only a limited number inside at a time to preserve the mosaics.

By the time we got to the Neonian baptistery we'd seen many of Ravenna's other sights. By comparison this is perhaps one of the less overwhelming experiences: but that's not really saying very much. A beautiful and fascinating building, with marvellous mosaicry.

This is another wonderful place in Ravenna. There is a ticket that allows you to visit multiple sites and it is well worth the few extra euros.
