These mosaics from a Byzantine palace are interesting but suffer from comparison with the amazing mosaics in the main basilicas. There are a couple of outstanding designs: the dance of the seasons and the good shepherd.

This is a really cool site with some wonderful mosaic floors still in situ. Not the sort of thing you get to see regularly. Definitely worth visiting if you're in Ravenna.

The mosaics are wonderful and well-exhibited, the museum is near San Vitale church, in the historic centre, the set up is in English too.

Extensive collection of late Roman mosaics, which are displayed wonderfully. Raised walkways allow you to walk through the extensive and well-lit rooms. The audioguide is a must, and does a very good job of explaining what you are seeing.

Having spent the last week in Ravenna and seen most of the sights this still surprises and amazes. It has style and beauty. Do go to see it.

Just a bit from the historic center you find these mosaic floor pieces that will take your breath away. Not as flashy in color as the churches, but these Roman works make up for it in intricacy of pattern and size.

Unfortunately not included with either combination ticket, this is still worth visiting. It takes you a few centuries back before most of the famous Ravenna mosaics and these are on the floor rather than the walls and ceiling. Highly impressive in any case.

Ravenna has loads of mosaic ceilings- here we've got a relatively recent find from Ravenna's Roman past- a carpet of fabulous mosaics, stretching across an extensive underground space. The information boards are in Italian, but we managed to glean the processes that archeologists had gone through as they dug through layer upon layer of history- through medieval floors, medieval burial...
