Sixt best of the entire Ravenna trip, included in the combination ticket for San Vitale, Galla Placidia, Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, and Battisterio Neoniano. The museum also includes an amazing mosaic studded chapel.

The main reason to visit is to see the mosaics of St Andrew. This is on one of the upper floors and is terrific.

This was our first stop in Ravenna. It was interesting to various artifacts from previously closed churches in Ravenna. Also inside is the Cappella di Sant'Andrea - which is beautiful and one of the UNESCO sites.

This museum is small enough to allow for a full tour of the collection without getting exhausted. The chapel's mosaics are a big draw, but so is the very early Christian bishop's throne, made of carved ivory. There is also a fascinating early calendar -...More

Worth it for the throne and chapel. I love Ravenna and mosaics so maybe I’m biased. I’ve never been to a disappointing attraction here but the competition is great in this small town.

The place itself is beautiful but the two wonders I just mentioned in the title are what you're looking at and for: takes a good hour to fully appreciate both wonders (ticket price included in the Ravena museum card)
