Whatever I had heard about or read about the mosaics of Ravenna still left me unprepared for the sheer beauty of what I saw with my own eyes. We had the benefit of a knowledgeable guide to explain the symbolism of the sequence of mosaics...More

We enjoyed touring this beautiful mausaleum in Ravenna while there and it is very near a basilica that is also beautiful.

very beautiful, an intimate gem of a place with spectacular mosaics. It is well worth getting the 5 sites ticket as the sites themselves are not huge - it is all about the mosaics after all. If you wanted to OD on gold and gorgeousness...More

We wanted very much to visit this place, but had limited time. Visitors are only allowed 5 minutes inside (a bit like seeing the Last Supper in Milan) to maintain the eco stability of very previous 5th century mosaics. Understandable - we didn’t mind that....More

The Mausoleo is incredible and is the perfect “warm up” before visiting the Basillica. It was lovely to be able to see the mosaics up close and imagining the painstaking work that went into such an amazing creation.

Beautiful small chapel next to the Basilica of San Vitale. Delicate, gorgeous mosaic tile animal and human figures. Lovely.
