This basilica is quite different from the other UNESCO designated ones that are included in the group ticket purchase. This basilica is larger and airier with a different feel and layout than the others. Still well worth a visit.
If we hadn't been to St. Apollinare in Classe, we would have thought this superb, but since we had, it is just very good. Seeing possibly the first depiction of the last supper was great; the procession of virgins in the nave was beyond impressive.

We used our UNESCO ticket to get in here (which we bought in a shop near San Vitale, but I think it might be possible to buy them outside this Basilica too).
The mosaics along the sides of the main central area of the church...More
Our first stop from the train while visiting Ravenna.
A great intro to the mosaics of this amazing city.
There is a small museum on site, but I didn't find it that interesting.
But the tiles in the Basilica were quite amazing and beautiful.
