Great place to see some beautiful mosaics. Since it is smaller you can really see the detail even on the ceiling. Worth visiting. Included in the common fee for the in town sights.

There are 5 sites in Ravenna that contain 4th - 6th century Byzantine style mosaics. It’s the reason tourists visit this small city. Some of the images are extraordinary, like the one of John baptizing Christ.

This is one of the many battisteros that exits in Ravenna and this one is oabsolutely worth visit because it has such great mosaics with incredible visual illusions. Beautiful and worth 16 minutes of your visit to Ravenna

This tiny baptistery is not included in the main Duomo ticket but is worth popping in for a small fee. Pay by cash in a machine at the entrance.

This church is run by the city and not the church as this sect was suppressed in the 5th century it’s only €1 to enter and it has very natural depictions of saints and Jesus and that is why it was suppressed. Beautiful
