This small site is beautiful. Off the beaten track, this quiet site features beautifully intricate mosaics. Delightful.

5 minutes and you're done. It is pretty but just a roof over a baptistry. Small and elegant. It can get crowded in it and your neck hurts a bit after looking up.

Although nothing exceptional this baptistery with its nice mosaisc is another great testimony of byzantine mosaics...

Try see this. I persevered in a blizzard, the worst weather conditions to see this: but worth it! If it’s on that Unesco list, see it! Would’ve preferred better light to appreciate the colourful pieces.

As with the other main mosaic sites this one is also breathtaking in its beauty and workmanship. A five site ticket is such good value for money

This small building with its unique shape is filled with stellar cobalt mosaics. Not as large as the other mosaic buildings. If a large tour group is in, wait for them to leave so that you can enjoy it.

This is also covered by the combi ticket and is well worth a short detour and ten minutes of your time to see. Yet more amazing mosaics, combined with late Roman plasterwork. It also seems to be less popular so you have more chance of...More

A pleasant walk through the backstreets of this sleepy town (where the shops still close for lunch!) will bring you to another rather plain brick building which is the Baptistry. This was not quite so crowded as some of the other places I visited and...More

The brick exterior gives no hint of what superb mosaics and stucco work await on the inside. This is a must experience interior. Mosaics don't get better.

The place is small, but worth going. The mosaics (abstract or not) are very beautiful. I am running out of adjectives to describe the monuments in Ravenna, everything is just stunning and incredibly well preserved.
