This is also on the combined ticket. Items of note are the early Easter Calendar, the Chapel of St.Andrew and the ivory throne, You can also access the The Duomo here also but note that it may close midday.

Found the mosaics here to be stunning. Sadly, you cannot take pictures. There is a small museum attached that has an incredibly hand carved ivory throne.

This museum houses a superb and important selection of late Roman and Early Christian artifacts in ivory, mosaic, sculpture, metal. It is well worth the time it takes to visit. Labels are in both Italian and English.

There are other interesting things in the museum, which is not that large, but you should not skip it because of the chapel inside the museum.

Explored Ravenna and my own and bought a ticket from the shop opposite the exit point of Basilica di S. Vitale for EUR9.50/- which cover 5 sites including this museum, Basilica S Vitale and the Mausoleo di Galla Placidia. The ticket is well worth it...More
